2019s The Dead Don’t Die
2019s The Dead Don’t Die stars Bill Murray, Adam Driver, and about 30 other great actors. My description: if Jim Jarmusch made a zombie movie, this would be it.
Wait. That’s exactly what it is.
Bill Murray stars as the town police chief Cliff and Adam Driver as one of his officers, Ronnie. Peppered in are other great actors we know from everywhere. Zombies. Dialogue. Political commentary. Awkwardness. Everything we would expect from this director.
And I had fun with it. I really can’t stand politics in my movies, but I had some fun with this one. I managed to tune it out, maybe because I expected it to be that way.
Some really funny moments, and great lack of emotion and awkward moments from all in the cast. Very self aware and meta approach to the subject matter.
I loved the theme music, and love when the theme music ties in with the title or theme of the movie. Maybe I’m a sucker for cheesy stuff like that, but sometimes I miss when movies used to do that all of the time.
This movie isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure. You need to appreciate Jim Jarmusch I think to like this one. And I did. Not topping my charts but I had fun.
