Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) – 7/10
Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Jim Jarmusch.
Cool, moody, reflective. Eve (Swinton) and Adam (Hiddleston) – a vampire couple are together for centuries. Immortality, however, is not without difficulties. Their undying love is the strength to consider time without end.
Scenes of the lovers together are breathtaking; the glowing light of Eve contrasts the dark, brooding Adam.
The languid aesthetes ponder music and literature. Their one true companion succumbs to tainted blood, a sign of the times. Eve’s sister injects an unwanted frenzy, compelling the pair to run. A chance encounter draws the couple and renews their primal drive. Alive in love.
Great sound track.
