Throughout the years director Jim Jarmusch‘s subject matter has touched virtually every corner of film 101. It’s like he’s going from chapter to chapter giving us and him, the run down of films one needs to do in order to be great. I don’t know if this movie constitutes great, but like I said, he’s challenging himself constantly. His latest, Only Lovers Left Alive, is another hip look at vampires, only this time it’s through Jim’s eye and who better to play two star crossed and androgynous bloodsuckers than Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk About Kevin) and Tom Hiddleston (THOR). Although these two are in their late thirties early forties in real life, they do young and hip very well, at least from what I’ve seen in this trailer. Don’t know if folks will be rushing out to see it, but I don’t think Jim Jarmusch would have it either way.
By the way, if your new to Jim and would like to see one of his classic films, might I suggest Mystery Train.
Only Lovers Left Alive, written & directed by Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Limits of Control) takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician (Tom Hiddleston), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Tilda Swinton). Their love story has endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, and Anton Yelchin also star in the film which premiered at Cannes, though Sony Pictures Classics has no release date.
