“The dead don’t die”: phlegmatic inevitability
Jim Jarmusch一般爱上僵尸没有特别注意到：是的，他在他以前的创造中提到过他们，“只有恋人会生存”，但很少有人预计一部电影在他的僵尸恐怖类型中。As a result, zombie horror, however, did not work: “the Dead do not die” (The Dead Don’t Die) is a viscous, melancholic story with a handful of humor and sad morality, which tries to laugh at the declared genre.
The plot is familiar: there was a global Apocalypse, the world began to change and the dead climbed out of the ground. And the viewer is shown how a tiny American town with a population of just over 700 people copes with such an invasion.Civilization-it is somewhere out there, far away, but the problems with the dead inhabitants are extremely local.At first, the film is somewhat reminiscent of “a Zombie named Sean” with a slightly muted and twisted otherwise comedic component.
In the first half there were moments, jokes, some small details that made the film look more like the creation of Edgar Wright rather than Jarmusch — Yes, a little slower, but still primarily comedic. But at some point in the ears began to break melancholic soundtrack from SQÜRL, under which the eyes flashed gaining anxiety landscapes, climbed out of the grave Iggy Pop, practiced with a katana Tilda Swinton — and it became clear that this Comedy is abundantly watered with bitterness.From the beginning, Adam Driver’s character, one of the police officers, says that everything that happens will not end well, and repeats this phrase word for word several times throughout the story. Bill Murray, who played his boss, tries to calmly pull him back, but soon he can not stand the pressure of what is happening. Chloe sevigny, their colleague is not very ready for the invasion of zombies and copes with stress with the help of screams.
其他角色也最滑稽——在这里and recent owner of a cafe in the person of Esther Balint, familiar from the “Three billboards” Caleb Landry Jones as a bit stand-offish Golovatogo seller in the sundries shop at the gas station that require wise counsel from the courier in the performance of the rapper RZA, and nationalistic farmer with the face of Steve Buscemi, and overgrown hermit Tom waits, who took in this slow Apocalypse nesmeshivaemost the position of the observer, and, of course, absolutely ethereal Tilda Swinton, has mastered iaido. All this hypertrophied in its one-dimensionality set of characters, pale, simple-it perfectly reflects the fading of the American Outback, making the film a little more monotonous, and unexpected bursts of jokes and successful moves become more vivid against the background of this oatmeal.
And the beauty of jokes just lies in their inelegance, in their clumsiness. They are served in the forehead, some special Outlook in order to smile, do not need — Jarmusch does not seem to want to be in the process of viewing his film as something much thought. It simply tells the story of how a tiny town fought an invasion of zombies. Not very effectively fought, if honestly, only constantly repeating, as mantra, that zombies need to beat in head — and instead blood from neobrabotayuschikh already arteries of the dead was bursting out black dust.
在这个僵尸的天启没有热情，没有灵敏度，没有任何感觉激励战斗的壮举。有疲倦，漠不关心，甚至辞职，充满了悲伤。没有恐怖。不怕。没有。从这一般，一般而言，电影中所示的僵尸天启看起来比其经典版本更可怕，充满了尖叫者，咆哮，血液喷泉溅到周围的热门人物的热门演讲，关于拯救人类或至少一个小组人们，有些希望。在Jarmusch的图片中，角色不在乎。但它意味着它在电影中不仅适用于新鲜人类肉形式的食物，而且为那些吸引他们的东西而感受。有人正在寻找Wi-Fi，有人试图在足球场上踢球，有人想到糖果，葡萄酒或咖啡。 Jarmusch tells us head-on that we, blinded by our materialistic desires, even in life turned into zombies, changing the impulses of the soul to the desires of the body. And, most surprisingly, the answer to the question of what to do with it, he does not give.
在目前的Jarmusch非常敏锐地看到的是愿望在一件白大褂站在一块凳子上，并向世界传达给世界，但他的生活错了。尽管Jarmusch的诗歌和其他人，但他没有摆脱甚至在这张照片中，他的陈述更像是在厨房里的早上四点钟的最清醒的谈话。当承诺进入健身房时，更改工作，开始排序垃圾，停止购买T恤，退出有毒的伴侣 - 之后喝醉了休息，所有承诺都被忘记了。Jarmusch似乎完全意识到他的照片不会意识到他的照片不会意识到他的照片提示任何人真的深深地思考他的生命，关于他周围发生的事情。他在决赛中反映了它，首先劝阻简单，毕竟，但请求。这部电影的主要味道是痛苦的讽刺，所有这种不可避免的氛围都可以接受，也许只有肩膀的灰色耸耸肩。
