Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

Jojo Rabbit, winner of the TIFF Audience Award and Best Picture Oscar hopeful, hits theaters in which a little boy deals with the stress and confusion of childhood by concocting an imaginary friend, in the form of bloodthirsty dictator Adolf Hitler. Most imaginary friends are a bit more innocuous than that, of course, and we talk about those non-genocidal imaginary friends in this episode, from invisible rabbits to evil rabbits to bossy rabbits with curious hostility for bouncing tigers.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover Joker, Gemini Man, Monos and The Night of the Hunter, thanks to Patreon Cameron Shaw.
