Only Lovers Left Alive
Director: Jim Jarmusch
Starring: Tom Hiddleston,Tilda Swinton,Mia Wasikowska,John Hurt
Taking place in a particularly gloomy part of Detroit, the recent film from iconic cult director Jim Jarmusch is a somber, darkly funny tale of love, humankind, and opposition to the latter’s contemporary status.
It centres on two main characters, Adam and Eve, centuries-old vampires who’ve taken part in influencing the rise of many of the best-known and most celebrated scientists, thinkers, writers and musicians.
It’s a film which requires you to look beyond any prejudices which may exist towards Jarmusch’s trademark zany style, and realise how with that quite often comes a piece of work with a vast amount of thought-provoking detail.
