Island of Cats (2019) Japan Cuts (2019)

If you like cats then The Island of Cats is manna from heaven. The story of a cat who tries to find a human companion for its “owner” on the title location is an absolute delight.

To be honest I don’t have a lot to say about this film other than my face cracked open from smiling so much. This delightful film is 90 minutes with good people and great cats and is an absolute delight. It is a film that will make you feel good and smile from ear to ear. Is it the “best film” ever made. Oh hell no. I don’t think it was ever supposed to be. Rather it is a lovely and loving film that is going to be something you put on whenever you are blue.

If you have tickets for the NYC screening that is taking place this weekend you’re in for a treat. If you don’t have tickets try to go score a stand by ticket to the sold out show. If that doesn’t work I’m guessing you should keep an eye out since a film this good is bound to end up getting a US release.
