The last time Wes Anderson took his act overseas, it was to India for 2007's "The Darjeeling Limited," which faced criticism for cultural insensitivity. Anderson's latest - the stop-motion animated ISLE OF DOGS - is set in Japan, and some of those same criticisms have resurfaced. While acknowledging its critics, Josh deems the setting "crucial" to the film's power and anoints it an early front-runner for his film of the year. But does (relative) Anderson-skeptic Adam follow his co-host's lead? A review of "Dogs," Josh and Michael Phillips' Top 5 Wes Anderson Scenes (from 2014) and the Filmspotting Madness: Best of the '90s Final Four revealed.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

The Grand Budapest Hotel should certainly count as "overseas", shouldn't it ?

I had to edit your post to remove myself as the quote's author because it made me cringe to feel linked to a Eurocentric sense of Otherness. :)

Very on theme, though!

Your discussion of Isle of Dogs was the best review of the movie I came across and the only one that made sense to me. Thank you for being sensible.
