Cannes Review: ‘The Dead Don’t Die,’ and Neither Do Old Zombie Tropes

The zombies hobbling around the streets of the fictional, bucolic Us city of Centerville have been awakened by global warming, and that’s possibly the single most inventive spin in Jim Jarmusch’s latest, the Cannes opener The Dead Don’t Die. Ghouls can’t be killed, and neither can the tropes so many previous classics of the genre have crafted around them, and which Jarmusch’s star-studded comedy happily rehashes in a ride that offers plenty of chuckle-inducing moments, but ultimately stalls in a swamp of meta-textual references and cinematic detritus.

To be sure, the deadpan chemistry between Adam Driver and Bill Murray’s officers Ronnie and Cliff is something to cherish. Bespectacled cops patrolling the streets of a countryside town in which nothing wrong could ever happen, the two awake to the Horror when the first Centerville denizens show up as disemboweled and half-devoured corpses. It takes Driver

Cannes Correspondences #2: Of Zombies and Deerskin Jackets

The Notebook is covering Cannes with an on-going correspondence between critic Leonardo Goi and editor Daniel Kasman.Dear Danny,A loud buzz hovers above the Palais as I begin writing you, a near-tangible electricity that billows from the tables around me and swells the press room into a large and magnetic beehive. It’s my second day of my first year in Cannes, and I still need to pinch my arms in between screenings to remind myself this is all real. They say the newbie’s enthusiasm is a short-lived creature here on the Croisette, and if I could have a euro for every colleague who’s sought to curb my enthusiasm to remind me of my place in the festival’s badge hierarchy I reckon I could have already paid for my Cannes room twice. But something tells me the giddy smile I’ve been wearing ever since I

Selena Gomez Says Social Media Is ‘Terrible’ For Younger Generations

Selena Gomez Says Social Media Is ‘Terrible’ For Younger Generations
Selena Gomez’s latest starring role might be set within the terrifying (and often funny) confines of a world overrun by zombies, but the actress and singer used some of her time promoting Jim Jarmusch’s “The Dead Don’t Die” at Cannes to talk about a different kind of monster: social media. In the Cannes opening night film, even the zombies tote cell phones, and when asked about the influence of social media in the current culture at the film’s Wednesday morning press conference, Gomez got honest.

“I think our world is going through a lot,” Gomez said. “I would say for my generation, specifically, social media has really been terrible. It does scare me when you see how exposed these young boys and young girls are. They are not aware of the news. I think it’s dangerous for sure. I don’t think people are getting the right information sometimes.

The Dead Don’t Die | 2019 Cannes Film Festival Review

Fear the Mocking Dead: Jarmusch’s Zombie Sketch is Doa

“The world is perfect. Appreciate the details,” says deliveryman RZA (in one of the film’s many throwaway textual gags) to collectible/convenience store owner Caleb Landry Jones during the extended set-up of Jim Jarmusch’s take on the zombie subgenre in The Dead Don’t Die. The trouble is, there are plenty details to keep track of, but none of them seem to coalesce into any kind of discernable takeaway than Jarmusch exacting a signature self-reflexive aesthetic of estrangement which features a number of his past regular collaborators donning kooky caricatures.

Like a bored, superficial cousin to Twin Peaks, this community of oddballs exists within its own idiosyncratic microcosm, with Jarmusch touching ever so slightly on troubling social mores alive and well in small town American climes.…

Zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die gets a red band trailer

This past week we’ve seen a batch of character posters and a clip for The Dead Don’t Die, and now coinciding with its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Focus Features has released a new red band trailer for writer-director Jim Jarmusch’s upcoming zombie horror-comedy which you can watch here…

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable, and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors. No one quite knows why. News reports are scary and scientists are concerned. But no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: The Dead Don’t Die — they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living, and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival.

Jim Jarmusch’s ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Splits Cannes Audience: ‘Winningly Eccentric’ or ‘Invasion of Clichés’

Jim Jarmusch’s ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Splits Cannes Audience: ‘Winningly Eccentric’ or ‘Invasion of Clichés’
The 2019 Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Tuesday with the premiere of Jim Jarmusch’s “The Dead Don’t Die,” and the response to the zombie horror comedy was decidedly mixed.

On Twitter, several attendees at the Grand Theatre Lumiere left the premiere excited, praising Adam Driver’s performance as a self-aware small-town cop and Tilda Swinton as a Scottish immigrant with a love for katanas that proves to be quite useful when the dead pop up.

“This is a winningly eccentric film, as attuned in its own way to the rhythms of ordinary life as Jarmusch and Driver’s (even better) 2016 feature ‘Paterson,'” Robbie Cohen wrote for The Telegraph. “But there is a pessimism gnawing away in its gut that can’t be laughed off. ‘I guess all those ghost people plumb lost their goddamn minds,’ Waits wearily intones. Right on.”

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Review: Dir. Jim Jarmusch (2019) [Cannes]

Credit : Abbot Genser / Focus Features © 2019 Image Eleven Productions, Inc.

Jim Jarmusch delivers a slow-paced, dry-witted but freakishly funny tale of zombies, ghouls and the undead; a star-studded affair perfect for its Cannes opening at the 72nd festival. Bill Murray is on top form as the central lead, small-town sheriff Cliff Robertson who has a mild crisis on his hands as the locals start rising from their graves in the local ceremony, much to the dismay of his mild-mannered, though negative-thinking colleague Ronnie (Adam Driver), and weak stomached fellow officer Mindy (Chloë Sevigny).

We open to Cliff and Ronnie pulling up into the woods outside the town of Centerville, somewhere in the present-day States, the duo investigating the disappearance of a some chickens from local farmer Miller – a gun-loving local with a dog named Runfeld who takes pride in wearing a red cap bearing the slogan ‘Make America White Again

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Film Review: Star-Studded Zombie Flick Runs Out of Steam

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Film Review: Star-Studded Zombie Flick Runs Out of Steam
Nobody has ever accused Jim Jarmusch of coming in hot, pushing too hard or even breaking a sweat, and more than 30 years into his career, the idiosyncratic director isn’t likely to start today.

If anything, his name has become an adjective, with the word “Jarmuschian” instantly calling to mind a cinematic mood board of sunglasses, cigarettes and studied nonchalance. And to that tonally homogenous filmography we can add “The Dead Don’t Die,” a typically deadpan ring around the zombie flick that kicked off the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday evening with a starry red carpet and an appealing, if disappointingly one-note film.

Of course, that note isn’t entirely unpleasant. Jarmusch’s wry understatement and cool remove survive the zombie apocalypse fully intact, and he still keeps the best Rolodex in town. He puts both to marked effect in “The Dead Don’t Die,” delivering a film full

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Review: Jim Jarmusch’s Sluggish Zombie Comedy Targets Trump — Cannes

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Review: Jim Jarmusch’s Sluggish Zombie Comedy Targets Trump — Cannes
Jim Jarmusch’s recent preoccupation with life at the end of the world (and the cultural decay that comes with it) arrives at an amusingly literal conclusion in “The Dead Don’t Die,” a sluggish but knowing zombie comedy that rearranges the bones of “The Night of the Living Dead” into a resigned lament for a society on the brink of collapse. And while exhuming George Romero’s metaphor-heavy corpus might seem like too obvious a choice in our current age of smart phones and stupid presidents, this (un)deadpan apocalypse makes that obviousness the point.

We all know — to quote a line from the film — that “Nothing is happening normally right now,” but it’s hard not to be paralyzed by the absurdity of it all. If Jarmusch’s latest often feels as though it lacks a pulse, this star-studded parable is held together by one consistent truth: When Hell is full,

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Official Trailer: Jim Jarmusch’s Wild, Star-Studded Zombie Romp Opens Cannes
Leave it to Jim Jarmusch to breathe a little life into both the zombie movie and the Cannes Film Festival with his latest feature: the starry festival’s official opening night film, “The Dead Don’t Die.” The latest from the indie filmmaker takes him back to the kind of genre roots he previously toyed with in his vampire film “Only Lovers Left Alive” (what’s next? a werewolf movie?), with the “Paterson” and “Broken Flowers” director next exploring the vibrant after-life of zombies. At least he’ll be armed with some of his favorite collaborators, including Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, and Bill Murray.

“The Dead Don’t Die” stars Driver and Murray as local cops who must spring into action when a zombie outbreak begins affecting the town’s citizens. Jarmusch shot the movie in upstate New York, and Murray has gone on record saying the director has “written
