Whenever I make the very short list of things that bring pure, unbridled joy to my cold, dead, and all around unpleasant heart, there are two sources of pure happiness that are near the very near the top:
1) Adorable, friendly, loyal dogs, who remind me that this world isn’t completely devoid of hope.
2) Wes Anderson’s utterly perfect Fantastic Mr. Fox, which really shouldn’t need any additional introduction.
Fantastic Mr. Fox was Anderson’s first foray into stop-motion animation, kind of like those old Rankin-Bass animated holiday specials except, y’know, better. Wes Anderson has assembled a fairly ridiculous cast for his next one, Isle of Dogs, which (of course) includes Bill Murray, but also Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono…it’s a very long list. And they’re all being well utilized if the marketing is any indication (which with Anderson it is).
This featurette is adorable, charming, and quite funny…
And check out this clip from the film which features one heroic pack of dogs and one less friendly bunch of canines having an epic, Sergio Leone-styled shodwn over a bag of trash. And yes, many dogs have commenced in mortal combat for lesser things, we are sure:
