Intense, darkly amusing and with a killer couple in Swinton and Hiddleston, Only Lovers Left Alive proves that vampires aren't just about the fangs and blood but a never-ending life - and how you live it.

A film to beguile, Only Lovers brings together the very best elements of cinema-sparkling script, exceptional performances, stunning visuals, oh-so-perfect soundtrack-under the skilled eye of [Jim] Jarmusch, a filmmaker with unique vision.

Jarmusch. Vampires. Indie rock. Really? [Full review in Spanish].

Nobody in this film is entirely unlikable, and each is portrayed by an actor you could listen to talk for hours.

I recommend sitting back, letting the amazing soundtrack work its magic and wonder about how great it could be to live like the two main characters.

There is something sexy about the type of languid decay we see throughout Only Lovers Left Alive...
June 22, 2019
What makes Lovers so excellent and unusual is the serious attention Jarmusch devotes to the trouble with being immortal.
June 8, 2019
Although a darkly comic watch, Only Lovers Left Alive is ultimately a meditation on love and aging, lacking the bite to be a truly original reinterpretation of the vampire mythos.

With a beautiful colour palette and the comfort of cluttered sets, Jarmusch wraps you in a cocoon of an introverted, isolated world that only the characters and the viewers understand.

Only Lovers Left Alive is one of Jarmusch's most alluring films stylistically, but the self-conscious, often silly script makes it hard to fully indulge in its sensual wonders.

Some will want the film to escalate in a way that it is never really likely to; instead it should just be enjoyed as a ride through the ghostly Detroit where one can luxuriate in the moody, chic milieu, not to mention the soundtrack.

Jarmusch is a man who knows how to set a scene, and he does it well.
January 15, 2019
There are horror elements in Only Lovers Left Alive, but mostly it's there so that we can enjoy seeing Swinton and Hiddleston et al in top form.

[Only Lovers Left Alive] provid[es] us with considered ruminations on time, comfort in connecting, and the progress of humanity in art and science.
October 21, 2018
Jarmusch has forgotten the key rule: just because you've made a vampire movie doesn't mean you have to make a film free of heart.
August 28, 2018
If Jarmush's atmospheric, blood-and-bohemians style is your thing, you might not want to leave.
August 22, 2018
One more vampire movie, just one more. This is the last one you have to watch. You won't regret it.
August 8, 2018
I would've adored this movie in high school, mostly for the wrong reasons.

"Only Lovers Left Alive" is as cool as it sets out to be, but by the halfway point, a certain smugness sets in.

I'm staying, frankly, with... Neil Jordan's vampires. [Full review in Spanish]
