Film Ick: “Last thought: I saw Diary of the Dead last night. It’s quite brilliant indeed – despite a few obvious problems with the overall concept. An angry, passionate, beautiful film that asks a lot of the right questions but doesn’t pretend to have all the right answers. The US release is in February; there’s no UK date yet; despite the AFM pre-sales hullaballoo, Romero claims to have no ideas for the next one yet and wouldn’t want us to hold our breath for it. I’d like to thank George Romero for being so committed to actually making films worth caring about, thinking about and, actually, loving. Diary repays your love. And it will join you when you stand up against the corruption, hypocrisy and greed.”
