Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★

So I literally have no idea if the Downfall video for this movie played in front of everyone's showing of Jojo Rabbit, but that scene had me laughing harder than I have ever laughed at any movie. I didn't laugh that much at any point in the movie, but I thought the movie was still hilarious, with Rebel Wilson and Archie Yates making me laugh constantly. The movie also has some really heavy scenes, and it makes me hesitate to call this a comedy. Sure it has a ton of comedic moments, but they are there to make these really dramatic moments pop. The last act of the movie is heavy with these moments, and the movie is better for it. It pulls off it's satire really well for the most part, and it sends a clear message. My only wish is that they made imaginary Hitler more outrageous. There are a couple scenes that are, but I just wanted a little more. All in all, I am a fan of this movie and I can't wait for it to get nominated at the Oscars.
