Jojo Rabbit – How to Direct a Gut-Punch [Director's Playbook]

Jojo Rabbit (2019) isn’t only one of the best movies of the year, it might also have one of the most emotional scenes in recent memory. It isn’t just “what” happens in the scene, it is “how” writer/director Taika Waititi set us up for a gut-punch and directs the scene using visual, narrative, and thematic motifs.
