The Press Reviews

  • The dead don't die, and neither does the zombie genre, with Jim Jarmusch's slim but fun hipster take on the format's familiar tropes. Full Review

  • We come to Jarmusch for his unmistakable dry wit and rejection of convention, yet The Dead Don't Die feels oddly conservative in places - though Driver and Swinton alone are enough to keep the hunger at bay. Full Review

  • "A wry, bitter sense of resignation permeates "The Dead Don't Die," an off-kilter zombie film by Jim Jarmusch which sees very little in the world that is worth saving." Full Review

  • It's always viewable in its elegant deliberation and controlled tempo of weird normality - and beautifully photographed in an eerie dusk by Frederick Elmes. Full Review

  • Caleb Landry Jones, as the resident awkward-nerd fanboy, also gets some stuff to play-but otherwise, this richly assembled cast goes to waste. Full Review

  • "The Dead Don't Die" fancies itself a cutting-edge macabre comedy, but the truth is that it's behind the curve of pop culture. That's why it's a disappointing trifle. Full Review

    Though The Dead Don't Die feels like a gently resigned take on the apocalypse, what lurks below is a pessimism and maybe even nihilism that feels very much of a piece with our time. Full Review
