Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★½

Not that we needed it to see an example (even less so as Waititi's Hitler is entirely superfluous) but it just goes to show how much better Bruno Gans is as a performer than Taika Waititi; Bruno's Hitler is detailed, accurate, terrifying and as the bunker memes have proved, hilarious. That the meme does nothing to diminish the greatness of his performance is even more miraculous. Waititi's is just a distraction that holds him back from making a better film. There's a good drama here but it's hidden behind the wacky Hitler gimmick.
