The Dead Don’t Die

“Damn it, Mallory. Even dead, you reek of chardonnay. Cheap chardonnay.”

Jim Jarmusch has made a career of going his own way as a writer/director, and this irony-laced zombie comedy, featuring Bill Murray and Adam Driver as unique small-town cops, is no different.

At various points, characters reveal they’ve read the script or recognize the background music as the movie’s theme song.

Then there’s Tilda Swinton’s sword-wielding alien warrior, finding her moment of Zen as she carves a path through town.

We’re frequently reminded “This isn’t going to end well,” but, if you love loopy, we might agree to disagree.
