Cannes opens with a comedic Zombie Apocalypse

From a distance it looked like Tilda Swinton in the chain shirt had come to the Cannes-opening. There were, however, only the sparkling things on her gown, which gave this impression. On the way to the red carpet, she stopped briefly to scribble your name on a prostrate piece of paper, and a Fan gave her actually a poster of "Avengers: Endgame". You could also sign it, because Tilda Swinton plays a part, Yes, as The Ancient One. Afterwards, they jogged over to the colleague, Jim Jarmusch, Bill Murray, and Adam Driver, to open with the zombie Comedy "The Dead Don't die" the Festival.

not To say no one in Cannes different worlds come together. In "The Dead Don't die" it was the dead world and the Living world: In the picturesque Village of Centerville, where David Lynch certainly could be a remake of "Twin Peaks" turn, done a few strange things. In the evening it is really dark, and the achievement of local television, more and more reports of aggressive become Pets. Are these events something that the earth has jumped from its axis, since the United States began at the polar caps with Fracking? Probably.

Poplinker Agitprop

the boy is the tank guard is wearing a George-Romero-Pin, indicates at least that the zombie Horde is not too far away. As the undead come into the town, you actually understand everything, what would like to say to Jim Jarmusch here: The farmer in Centerville wearing a "Make America White Again"-Cap, meanwhile, all the decent small-town people get a queasy feeling in the stomach, because the world has become so strange. The Zombie onslaught as a parable for the Trump Era, so, or, in other words: So tired of the undead were no longer in the cinema in a long time.

As an Elder Hipster of American Indie cinema, Jim Jarmusch has made in "Only Lovers Left Alive" from the popular mythology of the vampire has to do, of course, a couple of self-referential banter about the impossibility of a zombie movie. Probably the Gag, hear the resurrected with luminous Display gargling in the Hand, the word "Wifi", because it is something you can understand only as a Meta-joke about the fact that the Zombie is part scrapped as a socio-critical metaphor really. Or was that meant to be funny?

sure, Jim Jarmusch seems to be, how funny he finds all this. So clearly, as he sits on the zombie material on the political Situation, acts much just flat. The biggest irony, perhaps, is that the ultra-cool Director of "Stranger than Paradise" today belongs to those who believe, they came with their poplinken Agitprop somehow, as long as you break it with a couple of reflexive Joke on the cinematic Form and the history of the genre.

but That is not enough, which is why Jarmusch is doing well-always so many great actors: their performances have the Excess, which is missing from the Film as a whole. These Tilda Swinton, for example, In Centerville, she is a sword the undertaker with a gaudy make-up technique and great skills of the Japanese samurai, and something you can safely leave it running.

And then there was the immortal scene in which Iggy Pop a tomb is said to have emerged and in the American Diner, a pot of stale coffee down tipped. He twisted briefly, the head and choked out, "Coffee!", and for a Moment there was nothing Better in the world. (Editorial Tamedia)
