Isle of Dogs

Last week I went to see Wes Anderson’s new film Isle of Dogs. I also managed to go see the film sets at 180 The Strand before the film, so it was a stop motion filled day. The sets were increeeedible. They were all at once absolutely massive and minutely detailed and I loved every second of it. I found the fur on the dog puppets really interesting, you could tell that every time the pupped was moved the fur would move erratically too, and I loved how in the film they embraced this aesthetic so that the dog’s hair nearly looked like it was constantly blowing in the wind.  I loved the actual film too, I loved the ridiculous-ness of it but also the speed of the dialogue and plot as it chugged along. The character designs were fantastic, I think my favourite was Oracle, a little pug voice by Tilda Swinton.
