Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★

This is an attempt at doing so much stuff — including essentially two movies, "Wes Anderson w/ Nazis" and "Serious WWII Flick" — and enough of it works although there is plenty that doesn't and I wouldn't begrudge anybody who didn't like this. Some great performances and maybe it was just a long week but I found a couple of the third act moments, including the ending, to be genuinely affecting. There are better versions of this movie that would clean up some of the messy stuff but also infinite worse versions.

Thomasin McKenzie being great again is a good reminder that LEAVE NO TRACE was severely under-appreciated during last year's award season.
