“ONE CUT OF THE DEAD first appears to be a one-take indie zombie film… but something magical happens at 37 minutes in: the film’s director yells cut and – throwing all cinematic conventions and viewer expectations to the wind – it transforms into a charming story about the power of family, the passion that goes into making movies, and, in its stunning final sequence, a uproarious meta re-examination of the film’s opening single take and how it came to be!”
