Podcast: Isle of Dogs / Top 3 Dog Scenes – Episode 269

This week’s episode is brought to you by Casper. Get $50 toward any mattress purchase today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Wes Anderson’s latest film Isle of Dogs and our Top 3 scenes in film involving dogs in one way or another. We will also continue our Akira Kurosawa Movie Series for our Bonus Content this week as review The Hidden Fortress.

That wasn’t the plan though. We originally wanted to include The Hidden Fortress as part of the show, but we had so much fun talking about dogs in film that we lost track of time. So, it got bumped to bonus content – which is probably a good thing since we have a lot to discuss with that film. In addition to Isle of Dogs and our Top 3, we also talk about “dog movies” for our poll this week, so it’s an episode entirely dedicated to our love of dogs. We also talk a little bit about the new trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story as well, just to change things up a bit.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Dog Scenes (50:02)
Dogs have been used as a cinematic tool countless times over the years, and for good reason. Dogs are loyal, they are loving and they can help teach us about the realities of life. There are many great examples of this in film, and we had a lot of fun discussing why these scenes have moved us and stand out as the best of dog scenes of all-time. On that note, what moments or scenes would make your list? That said, what would be your Top 3?
