    Ok this is out now...

    Saw it yesterday with Noah who is becoming a bit of a history buff on WWII lately.

    I will say I went in expecting a kind of kilter comedy and there is that part to it, but it is so much more. A wonderfully deep movie and I am going to say it might have a couple Oscar noms, tough I doubt any winners.. Scarlet Johansson was very good and could get a supporting actor nom, Taiki Waititi should get one as director and maybe supporting actor but if anyone here is going to pull off a win it would be Sam Rockwell as supporting actor. I have always liked him and thought he does good work but he is fantastic here. Maybe best picture Nom too.


    If you were thinking yeah I would like to see this and will get it on disc, get up off your ass and go see it, this is a great movie and it needs to see some theatrical support.

    The Jews have a way of mining comedy from the unlikeliest of subjects, and this proves to be the case here.

    it was what I expected, but so much more too.

    "JoJo Rabbit" is an artsy film with dark humor and heartbreak as well. It looks terrific. Much of the film is seen through the eyes of a 10 year old German boy. What he sees throws a strong light on truth and deception, patriotism and nationalism. The actors are all very good with bonus points to Roman Griffin Davis as the boy. Recommended but not everyone may appreciate this film as much as I, or so I fear.
