28 Days Later might be one of my favorite films. It’s definitely my favorite zombie movie, or maybe I should say “zombie by proxy” movie, since the threatening hordes are infected by a rage virus, not dead. It’s not as politically or satirically ambitious as George Romero’s zombie pictures, but as a visionary piece of pure cinema—a film that, to paraphrase Roger, is more about how it’s about things than what it’s about—I think it’s unbeatable. A classic.
