  • Jarmusch, as ever, has the power to sneak up on you. He's a spellbinder. The same goes for his movie. show more

  • Only Lovers Left Alive is simply dead, an exercise in style, bland humor and vague gesture that yet seems to have been made in the naive expectation of a conventional response - that is, of an audience's actually caring. show more

  • You don't have to be a fan of Mr. Jarmusch's special brand of indie spookiness to enjoy his new film. All that's required is patience with its languorous pace, plus a willingness to swing between amusement and delight, with periodic pauses at ennui. show more

    This movie is not an exciting thriller, but a realistic interpretation of what the life of century year old vampires would be like. Tom Hiddleston keeps surprising his fans to the extent of his acting abilities. Overall, was left wondering and very pleased.
