Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit

Honestly surprised that Waititi was so controversial to bravely suggest that maybe indoctrinating kids with Nazi ideology is kind of a bad look.

Most of this falls pretty flat for me. The dramatic beats feel very manufactured to elicit a reaction without doing the thematic leg work to get there and the humor feels pretty toothless and safe for the subject matter and mostly just doesn’t work outside of the bits with Jojo’s friend Yorki.
