So says a very unhip character in The Dead Don't Die, and of course, what else could it be? Jim Jarmusch's zombie comedy opened the 72nd Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday night with a sort-of infernal hipness that both literalises and subverts the zombie formula -- with mixed results. His Centerville in The Dead Don't Die is another America under attack, by its own stupidity perhaps, or by the unstoppable force of the recalcitrant undead. As a contender for the Palme d'Or, The Dead Don't Die doesn't carry much weight to go all the way. The Dead Don't Die will open in the US next month, though it's not clear when it's coming to Thailand.
