Screener Squad: Why Don’t You Just Die!

Why Don't You Just Die! Movie Review


It’s time for some crazy Russian cinema with our review of Why Don’t You Just Die!┬áThe story follows our protagonist Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov), whose girlfriend has asked him to break into her house and murder her father (Vitaliy Khaev) to restore her honor. However, things are clearly not what they seem as the task turns out to be much more complicated than he anticipated because the father refuses to go down quietly. Aaron, Mindy, and Bradly had quite a bit to say about this VERY strange and VERY Russian dark comedy film.


DIRECTOR: Kirill Sokolov

STARRING: Aleksandr Kunznetsov, Vitaliy Khaev, Evgeniya Kregzhde, Michael Gor, Elena Shevchenko, Igor Grabuzov, Aleksandr Domogarov, Ilya Gavrilenkov, Vasiliy Kopeikin, Ilya Kostyukov
