Uxbridge Gazette - - Film Reviews -

ISLE Of Dogs is a self-con­sciously off­beat buddy com­edy on two and four legs, which marks writer-direc­tor Wes An­der­son’s re­turn to stop-mo­tion an­i­ma­tion af­ter his 2009 adap­ta­tion of Roald Dahl’s Fan­tas­tic Mr Fox.

The vo­cal cast chews on ver­bal bones with rel­ish, par­tic­u­larly Jeff Goldblum as a dog with a pen­chant for gos­sip. The film is arch, know­ing and im­pec­ca­bly con­ceived but emo­tion­ally chilly.

■ AVAIL­ABLE from July 23 on down­load and stream­ing ser­vices, avail­able from Au­gust 6 on DVD £19.99/Blu-ray £24.99.

Chief (voiced by Bryan Cranston)
