There is an out-of-body melancholy that sets in about three quarters of the way through Wes Anderson's "Isle of Dogs".With help from Anderson collaborators Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman, and new addition Kunichi Nomura, Anderson weaves a fable set 20 years in the future, when canine flu has infected an entire population of dogs, causing manic behavior, weight loss and adorable sneezing.Scarlett Johansson is a pristine show dog, Nutmeg."Isle of Dogs" also features the vocal stylings of Yoko Ono, Tilda Swinton, Ken Watanabe, Fisher Stevens, Liev Schreiber, Harvey Keitel, F. Murray Abraham and Courtney B. Vance – as the narrator. "Isle of Dogs" is currently screening in Beirut-area theaters.
