i was very ill-informed about the bosnian genocide prior to this. not a fun film to watch at all, but well made all the same imo
it was uncomfortable at times, watching jojo rabbit in cinemas. i’m not entirely convinced white people should be allowed to laugh at anti-semitism, even when it’s satire.
though, as always, taika knows exactly how to write and direct from a child’s perspective. and it’s really very beautiful and expertly handled the way that jojo’s innocence allows for incredibly sensitive themes and outright racist issues/opinions to be confronted on the screen and by the viewer.
