Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★

I didn't expect this, but I liked Jojo Rabbit significantly more upon rewatch. I came to a realization during my revisit; this thing is not a satire or even a farce, and if it is it isn't a very successful one. It has little to no teeth, but then again, neither do innocent children. Watching this through the lens of a naive child and his prejudicial misunderstanding, the film works better for me. I also laughed a lot more because of it.

I think the biggest problem with this film is not with the film itself, but in its marketing. The trailers and posters all kept shoving down our throats that this was an "anti-hate satire"; they shouldn't have done that.
