Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★½

I've seen Shadows, Wilderpeople, but admittedly not Ragnarok. [Update: Saw Ragnarok and still stand by this review.] Still, I'm struggling to identify why Waititi ought to be considered as great as he is, since his films leave me more wanting than satisfied each time. In Jojo Rabbit particularly, the humor would benefit from greater ambition or incisiveness, and beyond simple reductio-ad-absurdum, the film's analysis of the moral responsibility of Nazism meanders to an unrevealing halt.
