Jojo Rabbit

She who must be obeyed demands a:
Should Go
Jojo Rabbit is a weird, funny, heartwarming and heartbreaking black comedy.
Roman Griffin Davis is extraordinary as Jojo. He carried this story with a wide range of feelings, emotions, and actions. Taika Waititi is superb as the innovative imagination of Jojo’s Adolf Hitler. He uses sarcasm, expressive physical movement, and wit to define and make his character come alive. Thomasin McKenzie is sublime as Elsa. Her strength and compassion while attempting to stay alive in a country that reviled her kind was, at times, riveting. Scarlett Johansson is excellent as Jojo’s mother. She embodied someone straddling the line of life and death along with survival and what’s right. Sam Rockwell is over-the-top perfect for his role. When he carefully validated Elsa’s papers, you knew his heart. Rebel Wilson is well cast as Fraulein Rahm, a woman who got away with saying outlandish things. Taika Waititi (of What We Do in the Shadows 2014) also wrote and directed this film, and it is clear he knew what he wanted, and he got it, a fun-filled touching black comedy.
Special shout out to Archie Yates as Yorki a great scene stealer.
