Only Lovers Left Alive
DIRECTOR: JIM JARMUSCH
CAST: TILDA SWINTON, TOM HIDDLESTON, ANTON YELCHIN, MIA WASIKOWSKA, JEFFREY WRIGHT
How do you keep a love affair alive for a lifetime? For several lifetimes? These are some the questions posed by Jarmusch’s original and seductive interpretation of the vampire movie, in which undead spouses Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston—sometimes together, sometimes apart—have been keeping company for centuries, here seen traveling from Detroit to Tangier. The vampire’s curse is reimagined in Jarmusch’s vision as a kind of dream, an invitation to read everything, listen to everything, to know everything there is to know—and to keep the conversation alive, forever.
