Car Seat Headrest: Wes Anderson’s new film ‘Isle Of Dogs’ is “racist” and “infuriatingly bad”


Indie band Car Seat Headrest have hit out at Wes Anderson’s new film ‘Isle Of Dogs’ by brandishing it both “racist” and “infuriatingly bad”.

Car Seat Headrest whose real name is Will Toledo, took to Twitter to say: “Isle of Dogs is bad. It is an infuriatingly bad film. I am infuriated.” Taking his disapproval further, Toledo called the film “racist” and “so fucking ugly” before asking “why is it written as a joyless kid’s film when it’s specifically designed to be alienating and inappropriate for kids.”

Toledo added: “I mean props to Wes for finally making a movie that would appeal to literally zero people beyond himself. But also, fuck you”.

“This is the first Bad Wes Anderson Movie and I am so disappointed that such a thing exists now,” Toledo continued.

The follow-up to 2014’s Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle Of Dogs sees a young boy search for his dog Rex. Set in Japan the story is one of expected heartwarming joy with a dapple of saddening realism – as is often Anderson’s way

‘Isle of Dogs’, much like his hugely successful ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, will add a whole host of Anderson favourites to voice the whimsical characters. Stars include Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johannson, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, and more.
