Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★

This was alright, I guess. It felt incredibly lazy as every situation played out about as you’d expect and nearly every joke feels like it’s just laying there to be used. There’s nothing particularly subversive about it and it’s so cloying at times your teeth will fucking ache. It feels like a Muppet movie with all the Muppets removed. The kids all hand in fine performances but in service of what? Slow motion war scenes to choral music? Wes Andersonisms even Wes Anderson wouldn’t fuck with Wes Anderson’s dick? And can we stop putting Scarlett Johansson in movies? She’s just awful.
 I did like Yorki. More Yorki, less everything else.
