Jonathan Levine (né le 18 juin 1976 à New York) est un réalisateur et scénariste américain.

Après avoir été assistant sur un film de Paul Schrader (Auto Focus) et réalisé deux courts-métrages, Shards et Love Bytes, il se fait remarquer avec son premier long métrage, le film d'horreur All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, avec Amber Heard dans le rôle-titre. Tourné pour un budget de 750 000 dollars, le film se fait remarquer lors de sa première au Festival de Toronto et bien que sorti en salles au Royaume-Uni et en DVD en France, il n'est pas distribué aux États-Unis.

Mais c'est avec Wackness, qu'il obtient véritablement son premier succès critique, ainsi que dans les festivals de cinéma, notamment Sundance pour lequel il obtient l'Audience Award - Dramatic et une nomination au Grand Prix du Jury pour un film dramatique.

Charlotte Field est la Secrétaire d'État des États-Unis. Lors d'une soirée, cette femme sophistiquée et brillante retrouve Fred Flarsky, un journaliste politique sans filtre dont elle était jadis la baby-sitter. Fred n'est pas la personne la plus classe et son allure débraillée, son humour et son franc-parler détonnent dans l’entourage très codifié de Charlotte. Elle constate malgré qu'il a une belle « plume » et l'humour nécessaire pour écrire ses discours. Fred tente d'en apprendre davantage sur elle et ils se rapprochent de plus en plus. Ils deviennent plus que des collègues ou de simples amis. Mais cette relation amoureuse intervient alors que Charlotte porte un énorme projet écologique et qu'elle souhaite porter sa candidature à l'élection présidentielle.

About eight years after a zombie apocalypse, R, a zombie, spends his days wandering around an airport which is now filled with hordes of his fellow undead, including his best friend M. R and M achieve rudimentary communication with grunts and moans and occasional near-words. As a zombie, R constantly craves human flesh, especially brains, as he is able to "feel alive" through the victims' memories he experiences when he eats them.
