Forget garlic, crucifixes and wooden stakes. Jarmusch dispenses with the usual vampire paraphernalia to deliver a beguiling meditation on love and immortality.

"Only Lovers Left Alive" may be a vampire film to us, but it's a zombie movie to them.

Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is very pleasing to the eye and contains fine performances from its ensemble, but ultimately there is nothing beneath the surface to captivate the viewer's interest.

Film Comment Magazine

It makes for one of the most enjoyable and artful pieces of cinematic dandyism in the Jarmusch catalog, and for all its poised flipness, one of the saddest and most serious.

Reel Film Reviews

...Jarmusch seems content to eschew character development and plot advances in favor of a very specific (and palpable) mood.

There's not a wasted second, no imperfectly conceived moments. Like the characters, it feels eternal.

Akron-area product Jim Jarmusch offers up one of his most accessible films, a vampire piece for the ages -- literally.

While it's not quite a horror movie, Jarmusch has some fun playing in horror's back yard.

Antagony & Ecstasy

[The] singular weirdness of it more than trumps judgments that try to pin it down into good or bad, worth-it or not-worth-it.

Swinton and Hiddleston are sensuous creatures giving depth to the vampire hagiography.

"Before Sunset with Vampires" may be simplistic, but it's meant as high praise.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Wanda Jackson's 'Funnel of Love' introduces us to Jarmusch's stylish vampires, his pale lovers, his connoisseurs of art and oenophiles of blood, swanning and swooning through eternity, together forever even if continents apart.

I want to live in this movie. I want to crawl inside it and curl up in its lap and stay there forever.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Elegant, somber, literary-minded, otherworldy, inexpressibly sad, sometimes very funny. Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is both one of the most unusual vampire pictures ever made and probably one of the best.

Only Lovers is on par with Jarmusch's Down by Law, which also failed to capitalize on its considerable strengths.

A bloodsucker saga that's every bit as unique as Let the Right One In.
