I guess this was released last November. Likely in my cinema due to Oscar week, and it has nominations.

At 1pm showing on Tuesday, there were only a few seats open. I got my ticket and assigned seat a minute before scheduled showtime, and by film start I was surrounded and packed in.


From descriptions of it, I had wondered if it was similar to The Boy In The Striped Pajamas. Mostly not, but there were echoes of it at times.

I was highly distracted at the beginning of the film because I have seen Moonrise Kingdom, and found it strikingly similar.
I did enjoy it, and it seemed like much of the audience in my theater did so as well. I think that much of the disjointed transitions and jumps in cadence were intended to jolt the viewer, because of the subject matter. Sometimes I felt it was a SNL skit or Monty Python work.


This film may propel the career of Thomasin McKenzie, who I cannot really recall from The Hobbit. But many will find Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson, Stephen Merchant in excellent roles. Not really a spoiler that the writer/director also plays the imaginary friend Adolf Hitler.


The premise of the film is a 10-year old boy in Nazi Germany finds out there is a girl hiding n the attic of his house.
If this interests you, I think you will find the film satisfying. Foul language renders this unsuitabe for children.

Hat tip to AuRaptor for putting this on my radar.

I was looking for this a while ago but I guess it didn't get wide spread distribution. At least it wasn't in my neck of the woods, but I do know some who saw it. I'll look again, because I wanna see it. Sure as hell not too eager to go see Birds of Prey... Thanks.

“Jojo Rabbit” Captures the Absurdity of Our Trumpian Moment

Taika Waititi’s movie is about a ten-year-old boy who is a fervent Nazi until, just before Germany loses the war, he falls in love with a Jewish girl who is hiding in his attic. The film has been criticized for making light of unspeakable crimes. My colleague Richard Brody objected not so much to the film’s gags as to the empathy it shows to the haters, and, indeed, the movie can be read as a beautifully rendered version of a certain journalistic genre: the condescending portrayal of the misguided and misinformed Trump supporter. But it can also be read as an account of the profound and willful idiocy that underlies political tragedy. Seen this way—and this is the way I’ve seen it both times I’ve watched “Jojo Rabbit”—the movie is as brave and insightful a portrait of autocracy as any contemporary work of art has offered.

Up to about the middle of the movie, the jokes are palatable and the parallels to the present day are clear. There is the scene in which Jojo and his mother, Rosie (Scarlett Johansson), play out a version of many Americans’ holiday-dinner experiences. Rosie is happy that the Allies are advancing. “Goddammit, why does that make you happy?” Jojo asks. “You hate your country that much?” Rosie explains, “I love my country. It’s the war I hate. It’s pointless and stupid, and the sooner we have peace, the better.” Jojo is outraged. “We will crush our enemies into dust! And, when they are destroyed, we shall use their brains as toilets!” he says, slamming his little hands on the white tablecloth with green trim. Rosie moves to end the debate. “O.K., no more politics,” she says. “Dinner is neutral ground. Table is Switzerland. Let’s eat.”

But then the jokes get harder to swallow. The Gestapo shows up at the house. We don’t know what they are looking for, but we know that there is a lot to hide in Jojo’s house: Rosie is in the resistance, and Elsa (Thomasin McKenzie), the Jewish girl, lives in the attic.

We don’t want to imagine that absurd incompetents can cause enormous human tragedy, and we don’t want to think that tragedy, whether it’s enormous or not, can appear absurd. Either possibility has dire implications for our own moment. When the President of the United States is tweeting an imaginary “legal notice” of intent to bomb other countries
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1213919480574812160
and when he announces and repeats his intention to target cultural sites, which is a war crime https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1213593975732527112
and when he sincerely believes that this is the best way to be President, we would prefer to think that, in global history and politics, the absurd cannot be tragic and the tragic cannot be absurd. But the truth of the matter is that we are careening into our darkest moment yet, and we look ridiculous doing it. Jojo Rabbit is a movie about that.

Our current times are nowhere near comparable to Nazi Germany era.

Good grief. Drama queens on the Left literally hate on everything but never offer anything positive in return.

Anyway, found a nooner near by. Might make it Sat or Sunday.

The Nazi Party reached its peak membership in 1945 at only 8 million (about 10% of the German population of 80 million). Germans, the ones who weren't Nazis, did not see themselves as the bad guys during WWII. They were patriotic Germans! They were for war until Germany was losing. As long as Germany was winning or at least holding steady, all those 70 million who never were Nazis helped the process along to winning more Living Space (Lebensraum) for Germany. Who but a Liberal or dirty gypsy would not want more Lebensraum for Good Germans? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebensraum

Remember Oskar Schindler? A movie was made about him because he was doing right while 80 million Germans did wrong during WWII. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oskar_Schindler

Some tards have never seen Hogan's Heroes. Or cannot recognize a Nazi when they see one.

No small wonder Democraps continue to follow the Nazi Doctrines and Laws whenever possible.






SPOILER ALERT Next Post!!!!!

The following post contains SPOILER.

There is nothing pertinent in that post, so best just to skip over it until after you've seen the film.

Spoiler alert! Jojo Rabbit is not Hogan's Heroes because Jojo's Mother is murdered by hanging and Jojo kicks Hitler in the balls. In Hogan's Heroes, the Germans murder nobody and the Germans are not smug about their vast moral superiority to the English, Gypsies, Liberals, Jews, and FDR's Democrats, as the Germans were in real life and in Jojo Rabbit.

The same snowflakes whining about Jo Jo Rabbit never heard of The Great Dictator either, I'm guessing. Of course, that was 1940, not after, but still... folks knew what was happening, because they knew what had taken place before. That's why it's so unfathomably absurd that anyone would compare the past of 75-80 years ago to today. Zero semblance or connections, what so ever. None.

It's infinitely enjoyable watching those who exhibit Naziesque behavior on a daily basis call everyone else Nazis.

Are you claiming that WWII was all Hitler's fault? Or him and Himmler take all the blame? In reality it is the human brain that is at fault. Millions of human brains got talked into the need for more German Living Space, Lebensraum as the Germans called it, and those brains started to clear the land around Germany to make more Lebensraum. The brains of the 21st Century are still based on the same old design used in WWII. That is why the same problems persist for year after year for the people who don't truly understand what happened in WWII or in the movie Jojo Rabbit. You can find an explanation of the movie by asking the writer/director Taika Waititi. Or you can make believe that you understand what you obviously don't.

If you read dozens of reviews, there is much confusion about what Jojo Rabbit means.

Unless second is attempting to claim that Waititi himself is grossly unaware of what the 1940's were like or the causes of WW2, which is itself entirely possible.

So I finally rented Jo Jo Rabbit. About what I expected. Quirky, funny as hell at times, but heartbreaking too. Because you can't escape at least some level of tragedy when dealing with WW2 era Berlin.

Wow, what a cast! Sam Rockwell, Scarlet Johannsson, Rebel Wilson,

And after watching this, I have to wonder at the sanity of anyone who believes this showed any favoritism towards Hitler in any way. Seriously, you either didn't SEE the movie or have some substantial mental development issues. I hope for the sake of those w/ the latter, you're getting professional care of some sort. Just wow.

In reality it is the human brain that is at fault.

WTAF??? Seems your brain can convince itself of almost anything it needs to so it can escape dealing with reality

The brains of the 21st Century are still based on the same old design used in WWII

So? That’s not any where close to having a serious argument or valid position. Brains don’t change in 5, 50, or 5,000 years. ( You know, like the ones that designed & built the great pyramids? )

And did you know that Albert Einstein‘s brain was studied after his death. They found nothing remarkable about it to separate it from anyone else’s. So whatever point you were trying to drive at, has no merit.
