With grimy atmosphere, psychedelic music, twisted dark humor, and a hipster vampire rockstar romance, this is by far the strangest movie Jim Jarmusch has ever made.

Fantastic. I know this got some middling reviews, but it was pretty much everything I want a Jim Jarmusch movie to be, everything I want a vampire movie to be. Basically all movies should be this movie. I can't believe it took me so long to watch it.

A Jim Jarmusch film that I actually loved? Who'd a thunk. But thank you Mr. Jarmusch for bring the much needed romanticism, and bloody fangs back to the vampire genre. Swinton is, per usual, exquisite. She truly can do no wrong, and she commands the screen once again. Tom Hiddleston has less to do, but his quiet and brooding performance, is genuinely pulled off effectively. It's Mia Wasikowska, another popular rising actress, is fantastic in her small role. Also, the aspect of making blood like a drug to the vampires is a nice touch. Beautiful, quietly funny, original, Only Lover's Left Alive is one of my favorites of the year.

Der Einfluss für Jim Jarmuschs Only Lovers Left Alive kommt aus Kreuzberg und heisst Bad Blood For The Vampyr (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3JTaFcoEpQ). Ein Kurzfilm aus den frühen 80ern mit einige Berliner Grössen des New Wave. In Jarmuschs Vampirfilm heisst das womöglich letzte Liebespaar auf Erden Adam und Eve (Tom Hiddleston und Tilda Swinton). Adam ist ein Rocker in schwarz (ein Gruftie im wahrsten Sinne!), der am Rand von Detroit lebt. Sein Haus ist vollgestopft mit Instrumenten, er meidet die Aussenwelt und seine Fans. Eve dagegen geniesst das Nachtleben Tangers, wo sie anregende Gespräche führt mit ihrem Freund Marlowe (John Hurt). Als sie der Hilferuf Adams ereilt, hat sie eigentlich wenig Lust, ihre nordafrikanische Umgebung zu verlassen, um in eine sterbende Auto-Metropole …

'Only Lovers Left Alive' takes a more realistic approach to the vampire lifestyle. This is not a horror, action, or sexual flick with all the typical vampire troupes. Instead, the film focuses on the idea of what a life with immortality would be like. What would a loving couple do for centuries at a time? What purpose is left for those who have seen/done everything? These questions are explored through the every day mundane in an interesting fashion. The history of the two lovers is hinted at just enough to gain knowledge of their experiences. Swinton and Hiddleston are totally believable as a centuries old couple. Two wise and tired elders who, through the course of the film, find themselves inevitably drawn back to utilizing their long repressed vampire abilities to save from …
