Franz, Benjamin. 2019. Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal 49, no. 2: 34-36.

Benjamin Franz writes a review of Taika Waititi’s film Jojo Rabbit, analyzing Waititi’s use of genre-blending to create a simultaneously comic and horrific depiction of Nazi Germany. In it he argues the bright colors, Germanic aesthetic, and accent work on the part of the actors creates an immersive world in which we can analyze the decisions and dualities of characters such as devout Nazi soldiers, members of the Hitler Youth, secret Resistance fighters, and Jews forced into hiding.
