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.

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.

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

Looking Closer

This is Jim Jarmusch's dark and mournful version of Wim Wenders Wings of Desire ... immortals watching over a decaying city ... burdened by disappointment.

Ava's intrusion into Adam and Eve's existence isn't far removed from Ezster Balint's Cousin Eva dropping in on John Lurie and Richard Edson in Stranger Than Paradise. Jarmusch aficionados will get it; Twilight fans won't.

This is a film that finds horror not in the extreme, but in the mundane. That alone makes it a worthwhile entry in a genre that it both inhabits and rises above.
