Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★

Nazism as seen through rose-tinted, Dadaist, infantile glasses.

Accusations of back-door ratification are unreasonable; the problem is Waititi (who is half-Jewish, incidentally) is completely indecisive in both tone and satirical viewpoint and the film just isn’t funny or insightful enough, despite a fairly impressive juvenile performance at the centre. One gets the sense that what he was going for was something akin to The Great Dictator or To Be or Not to Be.
