Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs opened the Berlin Film Festival on Thursday, the first reviews are in, and the consensus is: It’s a Wes Anderson movie, all right. The film, about a futuristic Japan in which dogs are quarantined to an island because of a mysterious illness, has several of Anderson’s trademarks, but critics agree that it’s also one of his most daring movies yet, praising the stop-motion animation, voice cast, and political undertones.
