Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★½

Worryingly middlebrow. Subject matter demands more than toothless farce and Waititi has never aped another's style more, Wes Anderson basically deserves a co-screenwriting credit. Feels like every Waititi movie is somehow a little less than the prior one but I hope this is rock bottom - he's a better filmmaker than this suggests and it'd be a shame to lose him to a series of milquetoast dramedies.
