Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★½

A young nazi with Adolf Hitler as his imaginary friend gets to know a jewish girl his mother has hidden in their townhouse during the second world war. A few chuckles, a bit of a darker tone now and then, but a bit of a one-note and flimsy concoction overall. Inane, in a word. The production design is really quite elaborate but the actual content feels sketchy and rather thrown together - occasionally it works, and Johansson has all the best scenes. But overall I think Waititi's content is just not cinematic or interesting enough to justify this sort of scope and feature length.
