Critic Reviews for The Dead Don't Die

All Critics (173) | Top Critics (38)

  • Jarmusch loads his genre-tweaking experiment with so many of his A-list friends that it's a gas just hanging out in their company.

  • The star-studded ensemble cast-which features numerous Jarmusch veterans, among them Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, and Tom Waits-seems to be having loads of fun, which adds to the ingratiating vibe.

    Jun 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Dead Don't Die is delivered in one long, deadpan note. Some of the sight gags and quips are gold; others are just filler, but still kind of interesting in a wacky sort of way.

    Jun 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The Dead Don't Die is a notably sour movie, especially coming from someone like Jarmusch, whose previous work always seemed deeply affectionate about human weirdness, but who in this one basically waves humanity off as deserving its own extinction.

    Jun 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The scary (and gory) things on screen may be zombies, but the real monster here is the troll in the director's chair.

    Jun 14, 2019 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • Jarmusch tacks on some commentary about how maybe we're the zombies, drifting aimlessly through our lives. It would have more impact if it didn't feel like he phoned this one in from the land of the undead.
