Let me just start by saying that I am a bit hesitant to recommend this film. For one, it has a strong art house vibe that may not appeal to a lot of people. Secondly, it's really (not) about vampires.
Only Lovers Left Alive is a unique film, in that it uses the vampire mythos mostly as a means to explore the human condition. While the anguish of having lived many centuries is near tangible in every scene there's an understated beauty whereby it still manages to celebrate life and art, in one form or another.
Yes, our two leads are vampires, but it doesn't define who they are. The performances by Hiddleston and Swinton are so natural and genuine that their relationship feels truly feels truly lived-in. They could be the most perfect couple you’ve ever met, lovers for eons, perhaps the only lovers left alive, just the two of them against the world.
Director Jim Jarmusch knows what cool is and transfers that knowledge into his films. If you can handle all that on a slow burn then you may just come to appreciate the brilliant cinematography, smart dialogue and a soundtrack that captures the mood of a dozen lifetimes.
For me, this film ultimately proves to be a worthwhile experience that I will certainly want to revisit in due time.
Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin.
