Only Lovers Left Alive
Rene Rodriguez(Miami Herald): Even vampires achieve the blues.
Bill Goodykoontz(Arizona Republic): This is a thin skin that finds horror not in the ultimate, but in the mundane. That alone makes it a worthwhile entrance in a genre that it one as well as the other inhabits and rises above.
Tom Long(Detroit News): Somehow it's altogether very entertaining and weird and fitting, with Detroit looking like a place any vampire would be happy to have existence.
Moira MacDonald(Seattle Times): You slip on't so much watch this movie being of the cl~s who slink into it, joining an improbable pair of lovers and enjoying their slouchy symmetry.
Calvin Wilson(St. Louis Post-Dispatch): "Only Lovers Left Alive" breathes renovated and intriguing life into the parasite genre.
Liam Lacey(Globe and Mail): Only Lovers is to such a degree fluidly edited and thinly plotted that it feels nearly off-hand; yet, it's in addition made with great care, beautifully lit and station-designed to an eyelash.
David Nusair(Reel Film Reviews): …Jarmusch seems ~ment to eschew character development and plot advances in favor of a same specific (and palpable) mood.
Blake Howard(2UE That Movie Show): There's not a wasted further, no imperfectly conceived moments. Like the characters, it feels self-existent.
John Urbancich(Your Movies (cleveland.com)): Akron-domain product Jim Jarmusch offers up united of his most accessible films, a bloodsucker piece for the ages — literally.
Kevin Carr(7M Pictures): While it's not totally a horror movie, Jarmusch has some fun playing in horror's back thirty-six inches.
Tim Brayton(Antagony & Ecstasy): [The] rare weirdness of it more than trumps judgments that try to make fast it down into good or unfair, worth-it or not-worth-it.
Victoria Alexander(Las Vegas Informer): Swinton and Hiddleston are affecting the senses creatures giving depth to the vampire hagiography.
Scott Weinberg(FEARnet): "Before Sunset by Vampires" may be simplistic, but that it's meant as on ~ praise.
John Beifuss(Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)): Wanda Jackson's 'Funnel of Love' introduces us to Jarmusch's stylish vampires, his region lovers, his connoisseurs of art and oenophiles of hot spark, swanning and swooning through eternity, in the same place forever even if continents apart.
Robert Denerstein(Movie Habit): Jarmusch's vampires live in the (cultural) cessation of times
MaryAnn Johanson(Flick Filosopher): I have occasion for to live in this movie. I fall short in to crawl inside it and ringlet up in its lap and stay there forever.
Ken Hanke(Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)): Elegant, somber, literary-minded, otherworldy, inexpressibly sad, sometimes surpassingly funny. Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is both one of the most unusual vulture pictures ever made and probably single of the best.
Cameron Meier(Orlando Weekly): Only Lovers is on par with Jarmusch's Down ~ means of Law, which also failed to capitalize in successi~ its considerable strengths.
Boo Allen(Denton Record Chronicle (TX)): Dull, gloomy, and dreadful.
Matt Brunson(Creative Loafing): A bloodsucker saga that's every bit in the manner that unique as Let the Right One In.
Kelly Vance(East Bay Express): As in principally pipe dreams, there are a scarcely any stumbling blocks.
Jeffrey Overstreet(Looking Closer): This is Jim Jarmusch's damnable and mournful version of Wim Wenders Wings of Desire … immortals attention over a decaying city … burdened ~ the agency of disappointment.
Mike Scott(Times-Picayune): As graceful and as literary as Jim Jarmusch's agonizingly lingering film is, its assets carry it but so far.
Matt Kelemen(AspectRatio.us): Ava's intruding into Adam and Eve's subsistence isn't far removed from Ezster Balint's Cousin Eva dropping in attached John Lurie and Richard Edson in Stranger Than Paradise. Jarmusch aficionados self-reliance get it; Twilight fans won't.
