Only Lovers Left Alive - 2013 - 7/10
My bride phoned from the library, vampire movie in hand. John Hurt, Tilda Swinton.
Sure, get it, I said. I flipped the box when she brought it home and,
Jim Jarmusch! Oh, no!
Film not as self-indulgent or pretentious as feared.
Story of two intellectual vampires, enduring the centuries.
Dreamy, drowsy, slow paced, filmed in nighttime Tangier and Detroit.
Film raises several points, one being the dire consequences of tainted blood.
Dark irony of the food supply being so self destructive.
Definitely worth chasing down, but it is lethargic and demands patience and concentration.
