Jojo Rabbit ★★★★

Following in the steps of films, such as Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator and Roberto Benigni’s Life is Beautiful, Taika Waititi bravely presents a satirical film about World War II and the Holocaust. At the start of Jojo Rabbit, I was questioning whether it is appropriate to laugh at a joke about the pronunciation of “Heil Hitler,” but by the end, I was fully emotionally invested in the story. I should also note that Jojo Rabbit has an excellent supporting performance by Scarlett Johansson, which is sure going to elicit some tears. Altogether, Jojo Rabbit is the anti-hate satire we need right now.
