I'm staying, frankly, with... Neil Jordan's vampires. [Full review in Spanish]
November 7, 2017
The leadenness of the assorted would-be bon mots is equal to that of late-period Woody Allen (there's even an unfunny slap at Los Angeles), and not helped by their lugubrious delivery.

You don't need a PhD to understand this movie, it's just nice to see something made for grown-ups and that has no interest in courting the youth market.
August 22, 2017
It's an intriguing premise, and [Jim] Jarmusch handily distinguishes his film from its vampire predecessors, except I found it more engaging than truly satisfying,
August 15, 2017
The simple plot lets [Jim] Jarmusch focus on what he's most interested in here: his two incredibly attractive and charismatic stars, their relationship, and the geniuses and beauty they worship.
May 23, 2017
There is a serious voodoo swirling around in [Only Lovers Left Alive] that you will not find anywhere else in any other vampire movie. That power will stick with you long after the lights go up.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Jarmusch brings his arthouse sensibilities to the vampire genre, removing the focus from needless stereotypes and finding the humanity in the inhuman.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Some films are so deeply cool, you feel cool by association just basking in their flickering glow.
March 1, 2017
In Only Lovers Left Alive, stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton are utterly captivating as bohemian vampires who live like Renaissance artists in a world of rock stars.
February 28, 2017
What resonates is the movie's love story, one which is essentially about a very old, very married couple.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Somewhere around the lovely scene of Tilda Swinton dancing, freely and wholeheartedly, to the old soul record, Jarmusch's M.O. becomes clear: 'Only Lovers Left Alive' is a hanging-out move, just with vampires.
April 17, 2015
If Jamrusch's comedy is snobby and misty is precisely because vampires should be that way. [full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2015
A great theme and visual compendium. [full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2015
A delightful Jim Jarmusch film. [full review in Spanish]
April 17, 2015
The most interesting thing about this movie is the way Jarmusch toys with us to reveal to us a simple thing: it's a vampire story. [full review in Spanish]
April 15, 2015
If you are able to tolerate the quiet and smooth tempo of Jarmusch , this is a great story.
April 15, 2015
The pseudo philosophical tone of the film is really annoying, with that slow , maddening, eternal pace, as the lives of the protagonists , which seems to go nowhere
April 15, 2015
American Director Jim Jarmusch has the soul of an old rocker and he reflects it perfectly in this story of vampire love.
April 15, 2015
It is a parenthesis in the life of Eve and Adam, and for some audiences it may feel too languid and even frustrating, mainly because of inconsistencies in the script -holes--, but if you have patience, it leads to a final appetizing.
February 14, 2015
It's hard to imagine a pair of actors more perfect for these parts...monsters formerly part of humanity critiquing it from the outside...a fascinating piece of cinema.
