The Dead Don't Die ★★★½

The Dead Don't Die is nothing amazing, but good for a chuckle thanks to the incredible cast. Tilda Swinton and Adam Driver are the MVPs here, in my opinion. I liked how the story ambled around slowly, which felt very much like an accurate reflection of small-town life. With zombies added. I heard a lot of complaints about Jarmusch's/homeless Tom Waits' old-man-shaking-a-fist-at-the-sky cultural commentary, which I liked a lot. Yeah, it's heavy-handed, but it's about damn zombies. They've never been a subtle metaphor, despite what you may have been told about George Romero in a freshman year film appreciation course.
