Reviews: Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Don’t go into “Jojo Rabbit” expecting a side splitting comedy à la Mel Brooks. Waititi’s film is a gentler thing and Scarlett Johansson’s performance embodies his message.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Candice Frederick @ Elle
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Director Taika Waititi sees warning signs, and in the shadow of Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers, confronts the uncomfortable and malign with humor, winks, and farce. Jojo Rabbit is a remarkable achievement of wit and wariness – truly one of the best films of the year.

    • Excerpt: [It] ultimately finds itself growing very heavy while approaching its climax. Waititi does well to make certain this shift [from irreverence] doesn’t arrive out of nowhere.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Jojo Rabbit is a real joy of a film.
  • [New] | Matt Oakes @
    • Excerpt: The very prospect of a Nazi satire is risky business but Taika Waititi pulls it off like a pro, guiding a great cast and more-than-meets-the-eye characters to a heartfelt, deeply funny, and meaningful conclusion.
  • Jon Partridge @ Cinapse
    • Excerpt: A silly, sincere, bleak, and surprisingly wistful tale where love trumps hate in a tug of war over the soul of a young boy.
