Ultimately, ‘Jojo Rabbit’ is a fantastic film. Hence, why I have chosen to give it the rating of 9 out of 10. It’s filled with strident energy and ranges across the emotional spectrum with precision. It starts out as an extremely amusing comedy, before slowly showcasing a compassionate story of a fearful young boy in a world much larger than himself, divided between forces of love and hate, which is still beyond his comprehension.
Talking about the technical aspects of the movie. Roger Deakins’s cinematography and Lee Smith’s editing are praiseworthy with many scenes captured beautifully through the camera lens. The color palette of the movie is remarkable and gives a realistic feel of the war-like situation. The last fight scene where Schofield is trying to reach Mackenzie by running parallel to the trench of marching British soldiers is the best scene of the movie. That’s the epitome of Sam Mendes’ mastery of movie-making.
America in Delhi.. the Uni, Cafeteria, Dorms, Band, even a scene on the Basketball court. The foul language used, the clothes worn by the students, drug abuse shown are all in the superlative yet true and what's really happening.. Perhaps not inside our colleges but still in the lives of Indian students. The actors, director, writer and cinematographer, the whole team of 'Guilty' has totally pulled it off.
