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.

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.

What resonates is the movie's love story, one which is essentially about a very old, very married couple.

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.

If Jamrusch's comedy is snobby and misty is precisely because vampires should be that way. [full review in Spanish]

A great theme and visual compendium. [full review in Spanish]

A delightful Jim Jarmusch film. [full review in Spanish]

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]

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

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.

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.

Jarmusch understands that what's really relatable about vampires is the getting-old part: the sense, illusion or not, that as you get older, everyone younger than you is somehow stupid, crass, immature, and just not at all like you.

Its filmic style, quirks and humour make this the best vampire movie for five years since Tomas Alfredson's original Swedish thriller Let The Right One In.

Forget garlic, crucifixes and wooden stakes. Jarmusch dispenses with the usual vampire paraphernalia to deliver a beguiling meditation on love and immortality.
September 18, 2014
"Only Lovers Left Alive" may be a vampire film to us, but it's a zombie movie to them.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 18, 2014
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.
