THE DEAD DON'T DIE - New Jarmusch
« on: April 02, 2019, 06:11:55 AM »
Trailer dropped for this today
https://youtu.be/bs5ZOcU6Bnw
Looks fun enough, but I am extremely skeptical. Zombies have been hack shit for at least a decade now and this film doesn't seem to have much of a plot beyond "zombies". This is also very un-Jarmusch territory for Jarmusch to be tackling. Only Lovers Left Alive did involve the supernatural, but that was more of a quiet drama that just happened to be about vampires, this looks like he's trying to make an actual broad zombie film.
It also looks like Jarmusch and his buddies just fucking around, which I admit is charming enough for me. Hopefully the zombie stuff will end up being just a backdrop for Jarmusch's usual loose, deadpan comedy stuff. Basically the less zombies involved in this zombie film the better I think it will turn out to be.

This is what I'm hoping for too, but I like Jarmusch and most of the cast enough that I feel like I'll be pretty happy just watching these folks interacting via his dialogue for the runtime.  I liked the Iggy Pop zombie's callback to Coffee & Cigarettes.

I have no idea why I liked that trailer so much and why I am now really looking forward to seeing it! I prefer dour Jarmusch over fun Jarmusch but I have to admit that this looks fucking great.

I like that Jim Jarmusch appears to be close friends with the Wu-Tang Clan

Iggy Poppedhisclogs just saying “Coffee...” sold it for me. That, and Tilda Swinton with a Scottish accent.
