Taika Waititi is a wonderful film maker who has a great eye for framing a scene and a deft touch that takes what may be the most tritely sentimental scenarios and without manipulation but through storytelling skill renders them in a way that is warmly affecting.
Great visuals and great stories.
A recurring theme seems to be families. The knitting together of unconventional families.
See Hunt For The Wilderpeople, JoJo Rabbit, Boy, Eagle vs Shark, or even Thor: Ragnorok and What We Do In The Shadows.
Or just watch this two-and-a-half minute 2020 Coca-Cola Christmas Commercial that he directed.
