Highly likely to be a cult classic. This isn’t your typical zombie movie, and because of that, I was entertained by it more than I originally expected to be. I found it quite memorably charming.
Great cast! From Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Chloe Sevigny, Tom Waits, plus many more.
I have to specifically give a huge shoutout to Adam Driver for absolutely owning this movie with his deadpan humor.
There’s a laid-back, irreverent, tongue-in-cheek humor thing going on here that I really appreciated. Especially because those descriptions don’t normally apply to a zombie film.
In a very subtle unassuming way, there’s a world building aspect that plays out throughout the movie, that I would love to just dissect.
Speaking of playing things out throughout the movie, the running jokes had a nice slow build up to the eventual punch lines.
It has a meta self-awareness that pleasantly caught me by surprise, and gave us one of the more WTF exchange of dialogue scenes in this movie.
Those WTF moments. Yeah. Good job catching me off guard there Jim Jarmusch.
Those WTF moments will make or break your enjoyment of the movie.
There are things that happen in this movie that will challenge your suspension of disbelief.
The deliberately luxurious unexciting arguably meandering pacing might be seen as dull, boring, or frustrating for some people. Let’s just say that this isn’t a laugh-riot, horror action-fest of a movie.
Speaking of frustrating, there are several nonsensical things that are seen in this film that will probably negatively trigger some people.
The lack of a proper story, or traditional expectations from a film genre such as this will disappoint some people.
The social commentaries might be seen as annoying or too on-the-nose.
The conclusion to the movie might make people think that it just didn’t end well at all.
