Only Lovers Left Alive Reviews
Thanks to the out-of-this-world, dreamy ambiance Jarmusch masterfully creates, watching the film feels like being under drug effect; you're enjoying the mesmerizing images and music while contemplating the main characters' unfolding relations and existential ordeals.
As a literature student, I love all the literary allusions the film is ripe with. Even Adam and Eve's (Hiddleston and Swinton) relationship feels like it came straight out one of the imaginary worlds created by Poe or Byron.
Tom Hiddleston is good but the one who really stands out in all her exquisite beauty, grace and talent is Tilda Swinton as the ultimate motherly female figure/vampire.
I couldn't wait to see this based on rotten tomatoes high reviews but as it dragged and dragged all the way through I kept waiting for the big exciting amazing high score on screen.
it never came. sort yourself out rotten tomatoes. get a wider audience that these high score giving over educated luvvies.
get in touch with the common working man someday so I can get some decent honest non reviews

It's undenyable that the film showcases a more realistic and authentic view of vampires, but like most of the Jim Jarmusch films, this one is also boring and slow paced. One more sad thing is that though realistic, the life of vampires is ultimately not worth it and one would feel happy that they can die and not be like these vamps.
