The Dead Don’t Die

  • Dir: Jim Jarmusch

  • USA, 2019, 105 minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton

No superheroes to save the world. When unleashed zombies wander the town in their cannibalistic frenzies, two pokerfaced cops resist with sad stoicism to “kill the head” – with the help of a samurai mortician wielding her sword. An obvious nod to George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968), Jim Jarmusch’s hipster walking-dead comedy is filled with an array of amazing characters and a starry cast – an end-of-the-world party that decapitates the political ghouls beneath the surface of the lyrical and bewitching comedic invention.
