    The Dead Don't Die

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Jim Jarmusch may have been a little late in embracing the vampire sub-genre with 2013’s The Only Lovers Left Alive, but the film ultimately emerged as one of the more stylish entries in a seemingly endless collection of films imagining a world of nocturnal, eternal blood suckers.

    Combining satire, dark humour and social commentary to brilliant effect, it comes as little surprise that Parasite picked up the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival last year. Korean director Joon-ho Bong (Snowpiercer, Okja, The Host) seemingly has little interest in being confined to the narrow parameters of a particular genre, mixing numerous elements to create films that are every bit as funny as they are a serious examination of the state of the world. In this instance, Bong…
