ISLE OF DOGS (PG)
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.
