Director: Jim Jarmusch

Starring: Bill Murray, Tom Waits, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Iggy Pop, Danny Glover, Chloë Sevigny, Rosie Perez, RZA, Selena Gomez, and Sara Driver

Indie legend Jim Jarmusch’s (Broken Flowers, Stranger Than Paradise, Only Lovers Left Alive) new “zombie comedy” just opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and features “the greatest cast ever disassembled,” including Bill Murray, Tom Waits, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Iggy Pop, Danny Glover, Chloë Sevigny, Rosie Perez, RZA, Selena Gomez, and recent MIFF guest Sara Driver. The peaceful town of Centerville finds itself battling a zombie horde as the dead start rising from their graves. What more do you need to know?

It’s a minor, but most edible, bloody bonbon.— The Hollywood Reporter

The obvious thing to call this film is a social satire. The humour is dry, pointed and often very, very funny. But Jarmusch is too clever and too careful a filmmaker to simply toss off a genre film for a few laughs.—Original-Cin

For its slightness and silliness, its concerns are grander. Here, the undead ghouls represent nothing but the cold prospect of death itself. “This isn’t gonna end well,” Driver’s omniscient copper keeps intoning.— The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

Jarmusch, in his droll way, both celebrates and subverts the familiar elements of the genre.—Philadelphia Daily News
