The Dead Don't Die

I don't get all the negativity towards this movie. Yes, it's probably Jarmusch's worst movie; yes, it lacks tone and rhythm at times; and yes, it's kinda explicit in it's political statement. The later one is weird, because this explicitness is swinging between being consciously obvious (and great) and being the bad kind of explicitness.

But it holds up: it's funny and the performances are great. When the tone feels on point, The Dead Don't Die is awesome. The world has some weirdness in it, beyond the zombies, that suits very well. The meta aspects are clever and funny, though I would have like them to be more relevant to the story.
