The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Feb 26, 2023

It's time to travel back to 2019 to a film lauded during awards time... Jojo Rabbit! A movie we consider to be Taika Waititi's best work, a story about the battle for a young boy's soul wrapped in satire, humor, and excellent writing. Before we analyze the film however, we break down our Top 5 Satire films of all time! Which made our list? Listen and check it out! Then, we dive into the masterful writing, characters, themes, symbols, etc. prevalent in the film and unpack it in a way no one else can while playing many scenes right from the film. So, be careful of folks hiding in your walls, be sure to tie your shoes, and for goodness sake be careful with that grenade... it's time for Jojo Rabbit on The Movie Defenders podcast!
