Kuznetsov has more than a passing resemblance ot rapper Macklemore and nearly as much charisma.
July 23, 2020
[The film] wears its heart very much on its sleeve, splicing cartoonish levels of ultraviolence with darkly comedic characterisation and a steady supply of comeuppance for its worst offenders.
July 23, 2020
It's a blend of dark nihilism and Scandinavian absurdism. You'll probably wince and laugh simultaneously.
June 26, 2020
The bloody, bubbly dynamism and humour stop it ever feeling contrived, even though the film's theatrical set-up is overt with every element choreographed to perfection.

Mean, nasty, bloody, violent, funny, vicious, unexpected, twisted, vengefulwhat a Looney Tunes cartoon might look like in the real-life-if the Coyote actually exploded or Elmer Fudd really blasted Daffy Duck point-blank in the face with a shotgun.

[W]hen a filmmaker uses the limitations to their advantage to create an incredible blend of action, comedy and dark twisted humour that rivals that of any big studio production, you have one hell of a film on your hands.

Kirill Sokolov's debut feature Why Don't You Just Die! demonstrates that same energy and spark found within Pulp Fiction, with added live-action cartoon levels of violence and humour.
May 6, 2020
Offering wall-to-wall gore and super-stylised visuals, this bloody chamber piece is not for the squeamish.
May 5, 2020
A rip-roaring, bloody slice of Russian genre cinema that combines a tightly plotted narrative with a stylish command of craft to hugely entertaining, immersive effect.

Nothing more than a smirking, sardonically grisly game, but on that admittedly low level, it works.
April 28, 2020
Sokolov and his team seem to be students of the craft, and it's an absolute blast seeing them bash their way through the walls of Russian cinema to make something of their own.
April 24, 2020
It's a movie where you will know pretty quickly whether it's going to be for you or not. I liked it right away.
April 24, 2020
It's simultaneously so bloody and gory, but there is a simplicity and a playfulness to the structure... A lot of fun, but definitely not for the squeamish.
April 24, 2020
What wins me over here -- more than the style, the violence, and the indulgence of it -- really are the performances.
April 23, 2020
[Director Kirill] Sokolov's antic sense of humor helps it go down easy.
April 23, 2020
...the central performers handle the range of tones without snapping as abruptly as Matvey's bones. The insane violence and gore won't sit well with everyone, but Sokolov executes Why Don't You Just Die? with a cinematic sensibility and confidence.
April 23, 2020
Why Don't You Just Die! has enough blood in it to make Herschell Gordon Lewis swoon. It is fun, fast, and a good reminder that so much can happen in one apartment with endless buckets of blood.
April 22, 2020
Along with some surprising emotions, the film has a particularly riotous production design, with vivid colours and lighting, a pastiche musical score and actors with wonderfully cartoonish features.
April 22, 2020
Does Tarentino almost better than Tarentino.
April 22, 2020
the sheer intensity of that bloodfest and the rapid fire black humor will amuse the more stoic-willed movie buff.
