Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★½

Delightful, heartbreaking, bizarre.

Jojo Rabbit operates within the same area Life is Beautiful did, but I'd argue it works even better than that, maybe because nowadays this message feels even more impactful and necessary. Jojo Rabbit is about the joy of being human, and the sheer terror of being a human in times of war. It's the most important film of the year, and frankly one of the best. For ths most part, the film is quite quirky and heartwarming, which makes the doses of reality that Waititi spreads throughout hit even harder, all culminating in a brutally honest finale that doesn't shy away from the toughness of its subject matter.
