Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★

Taika Waititi manages to successfully balance comedy and heavy subject matter in this World War II satire. Jojo Rabbit is one of those films that will run you through the mill of emotions. It will make you laugh and it may even make you cry. One thing that this film benefits from is its charm. The relationship between both Roman Griffin Davis and Scarlett Johansson’s character is really charming. All the performances in this film are strong; Sam Rockwell is great and Taika Waititi plays a satirical version of Hitler and pulls it off nicely. There are many sudden tonal shifts but Waititi manages to pull that off too. I don’t have many issues with Jojo Rabbit; sometimes the pacing felt a little off but other than that this is a very well executed film that I would definitely recommend, especially if you are a fan of satires and/or comedy-dramas.
