  • Jojo Rabbit's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste -- but either way, this anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault.

    Jojo Rabbit works for me on the surface level with good acting and fun direction. Digging a little deeper shows me tons of the film's flaws, so I'll enjoy this from afar.
