KeatonTarantino’s review published on Letterboxd:
For a while, Jojo Rabbit was the upcoming-release that I was probably the most curious about. I loved Thor: Ragnorak and Taika Waititi’s sense of humor with it, so I had pretty high hopes for this movie, despite its wacky premise. Thankfully, the final product completely surpassed all of my expectations.
I wish I could see this movie again for the first time. It’s such an enjoyable experience. The film is hilarious and surprisingly moving. It presented important themes about how it’s okay to change. I admire how unpredictable it is, too.
Jojo Rabbit is such a beautiful-looking film. The colors pop, the cinematography is gorgeous, and even the costumes are unbelievable. The whole production design is truly remarkable. On a different note, the acting is amazing. I can’t believe how good Roman Griffin Davis is at such a young age. Scarlett Johansson and Sam Rockwell also give noteworthy performances. I think the most memorable character, however, is Adolf Hitler, who’s played perfectly by Taika Waititi. His line deliveries are absolutely flawless.
I honestly don’t think I have any issues with this film. I find it pretty impressive that a movie can make me laugh til’ I cry in one scene, and make me cry til’ I laugh in the next.
In conclusion, Jojo Rabbit is a hilarious and powerful movie that is entertaining but still has things to say.
