The Dead Don't Die

A small town fights a zombie horde and modern technology in a star-studded cast.


Why watch this film?

Cinema of zombies is undergoing a transformation. On one side, some directors bring increasingly powerful meanings to the figure of the undead, such as 'Zombi Child' by Bertrand Bonello or 'A Noite Devorou o Mundo' by Dominique Rocher. Others, meanwhile, bet on jokes or wild action, like 'Zombieland' and 'World War Z'. The new 'The Dead Don't Die', a film nominated for the Cannes Palme d'Or and directed by indie director Jim Jarmusch ('Paterson'), falls in between. After all, while making absurd jokes with its star-studded cast (Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Steve Buscemi), it also plays with modern evils and technological dependencies. It was divided among critics, receiving a loud boo at the Cannes screening. But those who embark on the proposal can find a zombie movie that completely breaks away from standards.
