Filmmaker with diverse taste in cinema.
The paradise that people want to go to after they die - the local shopping mall.
Before zombies simply became target practice for the video game generation, writer-director George A. Romero used them to deliver sociopolitical subtext in his films. In DAWN OF THE DEAD, Romero manage to tackle several themes from consumerism to societal collapse, all in a fun and creepy action-horror film. The effects look dated, but the film is endlessly engaging thanks to its wonderful spirit and themes that makes it all the more relevant today.
