Probably my favorite of the Romero zombie flicks. It's got a little bit of everything and cemented what a "zombie movie" should be in the minds of many horror fans.
It had been a few years since I had seen the film, and I was struck by how meandering, episodic, and lackadaisical it is while never sinking into being boring. Romero just got the balance right, I guess. It's an incredibly enjoyable ride the whole time, as we're drawn into the plight of the characters because, well, in a way we are them. It's a really relatable take on the material.
I could write 1500 words on this thing, and maybe I will at some point, but not tonight, party people. If you've never seen it, definitely give it a shot. I think you'll be really pleasantly surprised at how contemporary it feels, and how well it stands up to modern films and shows of its' ilk.
