Å drive gjøn med nazismen er kanskje en måte å uskadeliggjøre den på.
Jojo Rabbit, the new film by Taika Waititi, is nothing short of a masterpiece.
The director is the son of a Maori father and a Jewish mother, a native of New Zealand, and a bright star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe—he directed Thor: Ragnarok, the latest and best in a franchise otherwise burdened by a Valhalla-size sense of mirthless self-importance. With his new film, a comedy set during World War II, he joins Alain Resnais, Claude Lanzmann, and a handful of brave and brilliant filmmakers who sought complexity in the starkest of stories the 20th century had ever told. His achievement is all the more remarkable for choosing as its narrative engine the budding friendship between a young German boy and his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler.
