Taika Waititi and Stephen Merchant talk about their favorite movie scenes, which boils down to their love for Michael J. Fox. They also describe ‘Back to the Future‘ and talk about Teen Wolf. The interview was at Fantastic Fest 2019. The interview was Bryan Kluger. Go see ‘Jojo Rabbit‘.
Writer-director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
Enjoy the fun-as-hell interview.
