Quote from: Matt2112 on November 05, 2020, 23:55:20 pmJojo RabbitThis had a mixed critical reception on release, which wasn't surprising given it's quite a dark but very wry and quirky tragi-comedy about a Hitler Youth member with Hitler as his (quite camp) imaginary mentor, and who strikes up a relationship with a teenage Jewish girl being hidden in the house by his mother.Director/writer/producer (and performer of the Hitler character) Taika Waititi shows remarkable audacity in somehow managing tonal shifts where Nazi Germany is wrung for laughs in one sequence and has its horrors depicted in another. However, my initial reservations both about how this premise could possibly work and Waititi's idiosyncratic humour (seen also in Thor: Ragnarok) where soon worn away by a combination of an extremely deft and well-pitched script (which won the 2020 Oscar and BAFTA for Best Adapted Screenplay), impressive performances from the young leads and solid support from Scarlett Johansson and Sam Rockwell, amongst other familiar faces.It may not appeal to everyone but I'll count myself among those it won over; so I'd say it's well worth a go.

Quote from: DavidL on December 02, 2020, 11:21:05 amI think the albums to go for (from my limited knowledge) would be 'Just A Game' and 'Progressions Of Power'
