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]

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.

American Director Jim Jarmusch has the soul of an old rocker and he reflects it perfectly in this story of vampire love.

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.

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

It isn't too soon to add Only Lovers Left Alive to the list of the greatest vampire films.

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.

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