Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★

About as dangerous a satire as the titular animal, somehow managing to coddle both the good and bad guys, along with everyone in the audience. I get that Waititi was going for something more crowd-pleasing, and it succeeds in that regard if my theatre's reaction is anything to go by. I laughed, certainly, and found some scenes quite touching. But times like ours call for something with sharper teeth. Chaplin making "The Great Dictator" while Hitler was still alive was brave. This film will be less offensive to an actual Nazi than whatever AOC tweets today.
