Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★½

"Is it dangerous out there?"
"Extremely."

I don't think there's anything I don't like about this movie. So full of heart, of warmth, of compassion towards the mess that is the human race. A film that seamlessly blends Taika's brand of comedy, the war genre, drama, romance, and thriller, and treats the subjects of war and horror from a honest yet surreal, beautifully humane point of view. It doesn't shy away from the horrible events of Nazi Germany, but at the end it reaffirms life so much that you still walk away with a smile on your face.

I'm impressed by the fact it's got such a vast grasp of themes behind its quriky surface and how it manages to explore them all in less than two hours. Jewishness, bravery, forgiveness, sexuality, fanaticism. It's so fucking well written, goddamn, and I went from laughing hysterically to crying in the span of ten minutes.


Scarlett Johansson, Thomasin McKenzie, Stephen Merchant, Taika, Sam Rockwell and Roman Griffin Davis are amazing.

Yorki is best boy!
