The Dead Don’t Die
Saturday, Jul 9 at 6:00 pm
July 9: Redstone Theater
July 10: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Jim Jarmusch. 2019, 103 mins. DCP. With Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits. Jarmusch’s Trump-era allegory imagines a placid upstate New York community overrun by zombies who have been reanimated by the addictive consumerism they practiced in life. Decentralized and drained of suspense, this rhythmically loose collection of comic sketches for the coming American apocalypse veers unpredictably between the deadpan and the poetic on its way to a bleakly tragic anticlimax. The ensemble cast, pitch perfect from top to bottom, is led by Driver and Murray as the town’s hapless local sheriffs.
July 9: DOUBLE FEATURE includes admission to Night of the Living Dead.
