Isle of Dogs (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Look I get what Isle of Dogs was trying to do.  It’s a pretty typically quirky Wes Anderson film after all. But it just didn’t connect with me at all.  Yes technically it’s very clever and the artistry in the film is first rate (as are the amazing voice cast) but it also seems to be trying a little bit too hard for it’s own good.  Of course Wes Anderson fans will love it (I mean don’t they always) but for everyone else (and especially me) it’s just a little too much whimsy for me to stomach.

Best Bit: The animation is first class

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review
Beast Of The Southern Wild is truly one of the best debut films I have ever seen.  Stunning, poetic & beautiful this almost impossible to describe coming of age fantasy drama shows a true talent in the making both behind the camera and in front (Quvenzhane Wallis is truly amazing).  This is a film that deserves to be seen… if not always understood.

Best Bit: Quvenzhane Wallis
