Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★½

As soon as footage of Hitler youth seig heiling juxtaposed with audio from girls screaming at the Beatles started playing 2 seconds into this movie I knew I was in trouble. Haven’t been rubbed a wrong-er way in years. Yikes.

*Also!!! Maybe even worse than just run of the mill Nazi squeamishness, I felt as though this had literally nothing to say about anything. Hard to get on board with a “we’re not so different” narrative when you’re waiting to find out if there are any causal mentions of gas chambers dropped into the Moonrise DingDong aesthetic.

Fuckin woof.
