Romero's commentary in his 'of the Dead' films.

Post by xMrJPx » Sun Nov 11, 2012 6:21 am

I'm currently working on a College coursework project on the subject matter above and as part of it I need to get other opinions/critiques of the films so I can talk about other views.
I'm looking at Night, Dawn, Day and Land so for Night racism issues, Day is consumerism etc, but Day and Land I could use some thought on, there's the links to Vietnam and Iraq wars in them but I could use some extra thoughts to pad the argument out.
Thanks,

From wikipedia (but I've heard the same from other sources):

"Some critics have seen social commentary in much of Romero's work. They view Night of the Living Dead as a film made in reaction to the turbulent 1960s, Dawn of the Dead as a satire on consumerism, Day of the Dead as a study of the conflict between science and the military, and Land of the Dead as an examination of class conflict."

Hope that helps.
