Definitely among our top 3 of the year. Personal director's vision carried out with precision and passion. Terrific little engine that could.
It took me about 15 minutes or so to get into the feel of the film but once I did, I got hooked and ended up loving it.
^I could see how that might happen - the odd tone was one thing I WAS prepared for.
It's a wonderful movie!
I cried at least twice! Waititi has a distinctive voice and vision, which worked perfectly on this profound, heart-felt satire. I adored it.
I found much to admire about it, and the young actors who played Jojo and Elsa were terrific, but somehow the clash between the satire and serious themes didn't work for me. Too often, it felt like Taika Waititi's reach exceeded his ability to carry it off.
