The Dead Don't Die

The Dead Don't Die ★★

Sometimes I judge movies as directionless when it probably really isn't, but The Dead Don't Die fits the bill all too well. I mean, how could you go wrong with a zombie comedy that involves Adam Driver, Bill Murray, an annoying but funny Steve Buscemi, a Scottish samurai-wielding Tilda Swinton, Chloe Sevigny and Selena Gomez? How??? A wasted ensemble in a movie that's too slow. And while we appreciate relaxed scenes beyond cinematic allowance, a too deadpan approach leaves sequences, well, DEAD! The characters in town doesn't really connect and some subplots were thrown out the window to give way to oddity and style, but I'm numb at that point. And let's not get started with the preachy approach. Jeez.
