Twenty years after Day of the Dead, Romero’s return to the genre he invented was an artistic and intellectual triumph that showed he hadn’t lost a step. Filmed amidst the infuriating turmoil of the second Iraq War, Land of the Dead is perhaps the most explicitly political statement from a filmmaker dedicated to political art. Land takes place in a post-apocalyptic future in which the rich have ensconced themselves in the luxury high rises of Pittsburgh’s Golden Triangle, walled off from the zombie hordes, while the rest of the city fights for scraps down below. Meanwhile, the zombies are showing signs of intelligence, and they’re starting to organize. Can the zombies overthrow the callous rich who exploit human and zombie alike? Do we want them to?
