Only Lovers Left Alive
Only Lovers Left Alive, the latest film from Jim Jarmusch, offers the same sort of zone out pleasures of his early films, though the jokes are often more fragmentary. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton star in this story of vampires named Adam and Eve, who exist in the night but battle little of the same old "immortality is a drag" posturing of previous vampire films....
