All Critics (25) | Top Critics (7)

Inoffensively glib and innocuously arty.

The Wisdom of Crocodiles benefits from handsome production design (Andy Harris) and photography (Oliver Curtis).

Top Critic

A philosophical thriller that's no less intriguing for being murkily theological and ceaselessly artsy.

Raises the most profound issues about the difference between humans and animals, good and evil, truth and lies.

Audience Reviews for Immortality

Not bad. I was able to put my immense dislike of Jude Law on hold long enough to watch this, (mainly as I was interested to see Elina Lowensohn in something other than Nadja or the Hal Hartley movies).
This movie seems a little on the long side, even though it actually isn't, and an interesting spin on vampires is stretched a little thin, but on the whole, I didn't mind it.
Elina, as always, adds a quirky presence to this. She is definitely an underrated actress. Jude Law is pretty good too, and I don't generally say that, have not really liked him in anything since Gattaca.
Fans of the genre might enjoy this, although it is not especially violent and isn't a great deal of sex in it, which is unusual for a movie of this type. It is more of an arthouse take.

Very bizarre and very cheap looking. It's a straight-to-video in every way, but it's really interesting for some reason. It's essentially Jude law running around seducing girls and being a vampire. I just honestly have no idea what was going on here with the plot, it seemed like they were trying to update Dracula but I can't be sure.

Jude Law as a vampire. Dammit, they know my weakness! This is a really seductive film, and the premise is fascinating. Although it takes a bit of a wrong turn near the end, it redeems itself at the last moment. It's hard to say what it is about this movie that's so compelling. It just is.
