Why Don't You Just Die! poster

You take a little Tarantino, add a bit of early Jeunet and you top it off with some light Wong Kar-Wai. Give it a good shake and that should give you an idea of what to expect from Sokolov's Why Don't You Just Die! It's a delightfully stylized dark comedy with plenty of giggles, liters of blood and just the right amount of class. It's a magnificent debut feature that shows Sokolov has ample love for genre cinema, but isn't afraid to add a signature of his own.
