Jojo Rabbit ★★★★

Taika Waititi stiles again with this satire of the complete worthlessness that war causes.  Not shot in the same style as What We Do in the Shadows, Jojo Rabbit instead is paced like a straight narrative.  The film follows the lead Jojo who is completely sucked into the Nazi Party and everything it stands for.  That is until he discovers that his mother is actually harboring a young Jewish girl in the walls.  The tone of the film shifts from overly slapstick in the beginning almost resembling a Wes Anderson film and then right before the halfway point the story shifts to the bleaker topics caused by World War II.  Well made and worth seeing, Waititi fans will be happy.
