Only Lovers Left Alive

Buy Tickets

(2013) dir Jim Jarmusch w/Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt [123 min; 35mm]
ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE casts the suitably alien looking Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as two vampires comfortably ensconced in low profile lives on the outskirts of modern society. Rather than seeking wealth or power, these ageless beings yearn for aesthetic fulfillment in culture and art. As gorgeous, enigmatic, haunting and wryly funny as you would expect a vampire movie directed by Jim Jarmusch to be.

“If Jim Jarmusch’s languorous, laconic style isn’t your bag, his stone-faced vampire comedy won’t make you a believer. Those who’ve already been bitten, however, will swoon like the film’s toothy leads whenever their lips touch neck juice.” – Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York

“Only Lovers Left Alive is silly and deeply serious at once, an elegy with a light touch and more than a dash of hope.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

“In many respects, Adam and Eve are nocturnal cousins to the angels from Wim Wenders’ “Wings Of Desire”: They’re secret observers of history, living records of the past with little control over the future. But Jarmusch has no interest in the kind of guilt and grief Wenders wove through his movie; Only Lovers comes in a hipper, sexier shade of melancholy.” – A.A. Dowd, The A.V. Club
