New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: Mediaversity Reviews: Jojo Rabbit

By Andrea Thompson

Technical: 5/5

I’m a big fan of Taika Waititi, from his vampire comedy series What We Do in the Shadows or earlier films like Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) and Thor: Ragnarok (2017). After success in both indie and mainstream universes, Waititi could have played it safe with another family-friendly work or action movie. Instead, with Jojo Rabbit, he makes a satire led by Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis), a 10-year-old boy who is such a true believer in Nazism that his imaginary friend is Hitler himself. As if that weren’t cheeky enough, Waititi himself plays this imaginary Hitler.
