A SpoilerFreeReview rabbit hole captured in two viewings:
Viewing One: Jojo Rabbit is the most original film of the year and an instant hipster classic courtesy of Taika Waititi.
Viewing Two: Jojo Rabbit falls short of being a hipster classic that demands repeat viewings like Waititi’s true masterpiece, Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Why? The Mel Brooks inspired farce with a touch of Wes Anderson gets too much screen time, muting the emotional impact that could’ve reached the emotional heights of Life is Beautiful.
Viewing Results in other words: My wife cried a lot.
