    Isle of Dogs

    ★★★★

    Behind the beautiful animation and foreign, almost surrealist atmosphere of Isle of Dogs lies a disappointingly shallow plot with generic themes and weak subtext. The film lacks meaning and purpose but is still enjoyable thanks to the care that went into every detail of each shot. If only the same could be said about the script.
