"As both director and performer, Waititi is on top form."

— Christopher Machell, CineVue

"A twisted piece of grandly entertaining provocation. ... This is a dark satire that finds a way to make a case for understanding."

— Steve Pond, TheWrap

"Taika Waititi knocks it out of der park with the meaningful lunacy of his anti-hate satire, which is equal parts Mel Brooks, Wes Anderson and Waititi's own whimsical brilliance."

— Peter Howell, Toronto Star

"Waititi isn't making light of Nazis; he's mocking them, denying them and their present-day analogues the dignity of taking them-as distinct from the very real threat they pose-seriously."

— Sam Adams, Slate

"Strikes just the right balance between comedy, tragedy, and drama, the result being a very funny WWII film that nevertheless carries an incredibly important message about the here and now."

— Chris Tilly, IGN

"In its precision, Jojo Rabbit may remind you of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, another comedy in which clownish forces of fascism squared off against love, humor and elegance -- both movies feel like they come from the same universe."

— Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
