A Wes Anderson Playlist in Preparation for ‘Isle of Dogs’

If you’re like me, chances are that Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs still isn’t playing in a theater near you.  Lucky individuals in Los Angeles and New York had the chance to see the film this past weekend, but the rest of us are stuck waiting — building anticipation until the day it releases in our areas finally arrives.

To celebrate the release of Isle of Dogs (or to soften the ever-growing frustration of being unable to see it), here’s a playlist of some great Andersonian-pop songs as created by Reel Opinions:
