Director Taika Waititi on the darkness of Jojo Rabbit

  • Published: 16 October 2019
  • It’s hard to imagine having the guts to pitch—let alone make—a movie about a boy and his imaginary friend Hitler, but that’s why Taika Waititi makes the big bucks. The director has been dreaming of making the new Jojo Rabbit for some time, and only managed to seal the deal when he agreed to play the aforementioned genocidal dictator. The A.V. Club talked to him about the film’s origins and messages at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the movie garnered, as IndieWire wrote, both “Oscar buzz and some outspoken detractors.”

    I think Waititi should next play Trump.

      The problem with satire of Trump is that it looks like just more Trump.
      Clown fascism seems immune to satire because the supporters don't seem to care how corrupt or absurd or foul or stupid their great leader is so long as he continues to deliver a stream of pointless cruelties. They just call it all "3d chess".
