Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★

It’s incredibly impressive how this film goes from making you laugh hysterically at one moment and then a line in spoken or an image is shown and you are immediately pulled into the emotional consequences of the situation. The tone is pulled off to near perfection and watching a film with this much care put into it is always a joy. It’s clear that Waititi really wanted this story to be told. I wish it had a bit more of his voice though, it often feels like it’s trying to imitate other directors styles and with a director as original as this that’s kind of a shame. It also drags a little in the first act but that’s very forgivable considering the quality of everything else. One of the most interesting of the year, that’s for sure.
