The Dead Don't Die Review

The Dead Don’t Die is Jim Jarmusch’s love letter to George Romero. The iconoclastic indie director twists his usual sardonic gaze upon the common tropes of zombie films (the mantra is “kill the head” as a way of vanquishing the foes), and Jarmusch’s goal is to set a desiccating look at the underpinnings of undead mythology.

With an all-star cast that includes Jarmusch regulars and newcomers alike, including Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Iggy Pop, RZA, Sara Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Selena Gomez, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Danny Glover, Steve Buscemi, and (perhaps the most effective in the cast) Tom Waits. This is an incredible assemblage of talent all there to bring this vision to the fore, one where things are just a little bit quieter and the pace just a little bit slower than your usual ghoulish romp.

Jim Jarmusch‘s star-studded zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die remains an enigma. Despite featuring Jarmusch’s usual players, it looks unlike any other film the Only Lovers Left Alive director has made so far. Jarmusch has dabbled in comedy plenty of times, but has he ever gone this silly? Or is the marketing for this movie deceiving us all, and there’s more than meets the eye here? I don’t know, but this Dead Don’t Die clip is suitably goofy, and advises you how to survive a zombie apocalypse.
