  1. Eric Rucker's rating of the film Zombies

    MUBI's concessions to geographical diversity are generally ghettoized in the shorts category. Same with films directed by women: overrepresented in the shorts but missing from feature films unless they co-direct with a man. For shame. Count the number of films associated with France on any given day. I love a lot of French culture, but I am here to explore the world and history and far corners of film. Shame.

  2. David R Williams's rating of the film Zombies

    A slice of culture. Beautiful and surreal. Transformation. The club scene and the street scene. Everybody obsessed with their own self(ie) image. We are all gangstas and divas and supermodels and famous politicians trolling for likes, lost in our own gazes.

  3. Marit Liang's rating of the film Zombies

    Pure ecstatic cinema. Baloji is a young genius.

  4. David Cabello's rating of the film Zombies

    Interesante propuesta sonora, visual y conceptual. Temas de una realidad globalizada y que no nos sorprende verla o vivirla en distintas latitudes del mundo

  5. elguille73's rating of the film Zombies

  6. I.Camera's rating of the film Zombies

    A surprising burst of noise and colour, and a film that aligns African filmmaking with dance music and the numbing effects of Instagram culture. Perhaps more of an extended music video than a short film (Baloji's background being in music and poetry), but it's one that hints at a tremendous emerging film talent. This is something new, and I especially liked the end credits, framed through a series of text messages.

  11. nica's rating of the film Zombies

    Very entertaining and colorful with some catchy songs to boot. The humor throughout is great. I’d love to see Dir. Baloji make a musical feature.

  12. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Zombies

    Vibrant, colorful, and full of creative power with a little social commentary thrown in for good measure.

  13. Steffi's rating of the film Zombies

    Best styling, music, photography, dancing. Great concept to show a different Congo!

  14. Mister Monkeyman's rating of the film Zombies

    A rather fine quarter hour of visual inventiveness with a style and rhythm that seems at once exuberantly African and disturbingly revealing of the realities of life in that continent.

  15. Andismile's rating of the film Zombies

    Magnifique! Mesmerizing. C'est si chic!

  18. Graz's rating of the film Zombies

  19. Santiago Delgado's rating of the film Zombies

    I liked the music (kind of an afrobeat style) and the last frames. Also the montage and costumes were outstanding! In my opinion, it had a videoclip style and structure.

  20. Loz Loory's rating of the film Zombies

    Extraordinary, striking mise en scene. Brilliant choreography and editing. Loved the use of the yellow color as a warning signal. Where once the myth of the "zombie" arose from enslaved people who fantasized about escaping the pain inflicted on their bodies and minds, now people are "voluntary zombies." With their addiction to the Digital Cult of Self, they try to remain unaware of environmental suffering. Fantastic.
