The brilliance of this movie stems from it's unexpected simplicity.

I was finally able to see this, and I fully understand all the nominations it is
receiving. Jojo Rabbit is a satirical film that takes place in Germany during
WWII. It follows a young boy who dreams of becoming a Nazi, so much so
that his imaginary friend is Hitler. As the film progresses, he ... Read More »

Considering the rise of white nationalism on a global scale, Jojo Rabbit and it's brilliant dressing down of fanaticism, fascism, and hate couldn't have come at a better time. Though the movie is tremendously funny packed with some incredible jokes, it doesn't shy away from the horrifying realiti... Read More »

Jojo Rabbit is a heartwarming yet dark and twisted ,satire or whatever you may want to call it type of movie.This movie makes you laugh at moments but isn’t afraid to make the viewers get emotional or think deeply over the film. It is a movie of substance.What makes people love this movie so much is the story along with its excecution and overall meaning.This movie delivers us a lot of thought provoking quotes and moments. Brilliant cinematography. What amazes the viewers the most is the standout performances of Roman griffin and Taika Waititi. Roman griffin being the centre of the act exceeds all expectations.He fills in the role perfectly. The Same goes for all the co-actors.We see a beautiful tale between a mother and son and a beautiful romance developing between a friend and foe.This movie is one with a deep meaning for the world and it delivers right on the forefront of happenings around the world. A must watch. One of the best movies of 2019.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this film. It was so funny, so poignant and so unlike anything else I've ever seen. Highly recommend!

Thanks to our Adult Services Librarian, I have just recently been introduced to the work of
Taika Waititi. It has been interesting to see how this writer/director/actor has continued to develop his unique story-telling style during his career. His use of vibrant color, dark humor and pathos continue to grab my attention. Those who appreciate innovative movie-making should give him a try.

For those familiar with Taika Waititi's other films, this is not his best. The trailers present it as a pure comedy, and there is some surreal humour, but it's similar in tone to Waititi's bittersweet Boy. Here he is also taking on challenging material and balancing comedy and drama. I would have gone much further, but heck, he got it made and distributed, and most people either like it or love it. And who am I to quarrel with success?

This movie will make you laugh and cry and cheer. If you like dark, offbeat humor, what are you waiting for?

I don't know what kind of sense of humour would appreciate this movie but it sure wasn't my cup of tea. From listening to all of the reviews and seeing all of the award nominations I was sure I was going to see a good quality picture but I was sorely disappointed. It was like they couldn't decide to make the movie a comedy or a drama and neither worked. It ranged from totally absurd to confusing and just weird!

The darker heart in this quirky (at times outright absurd) film sneaks up on you so gently is is beautiful to behold.

Amazing film. I've always like Scarlett Johannson but she still surprised me with this incredible performance.
