      Critics Consensus

      Worth watching for Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton's performances alone, Only Lovers Left Alive finds writer-director Jim Jarmusch adding a typically offbeat entry to the vampire genre. Read critic reviews

        What would vampires live like today? We already got an answer to that in the hilariously funny "What we do in the shadows" but Jim Jarmush has his own. They stick to the rules and stay undetected, not killing people. They've been the muses behind scientists and artists for centuries but grow weary of humans. Hiddleston is a surprisingly grumpy vampire, not giving us his trademark grin. His hipster snob is pretty amusing, just like Swinton's hippie.There are genuinely funny, albeit subtle, moments. But the film's pace is really slow and the plot remains somewhat episodic. That's still rather entertaining but could have used a bit more of a, well, bite.

        As an art film, "Only Lovers Left Alive" is beautiful, stylish and meditative. As a vampire flick, it's boring, aimless and anemic. Whether you like the movie or not will depend heavily on what you're looking for.

        Beautiful, to be sure, but Only Lovers Left Alive is under-explored and lacks conflict for all but its second act.

        Only Lovers Left Alive has a vibe that is laid back and moody: melancholic and yet loving beauty and art and life; the love and melancholy seem to feed off each other. Whether or not you can feel such a vibe or can enjoy style simply as the outflow of artistic feeling (like with Godard films) will determine whether you can like this movie. The film is not so much driven by plot; it is like music that is more about mood than melody; it is more about what keeps vampires going in their esoteric dystopia where the blood of life is stagnant and contaminated. Personally, I enjoyed it quite a bit, as I have most Jarmusch films. They have an authenticity and sincerity to them, and one gets a feeling of love for music and creation. Various aspects are easy to critique, but I do not see the point. In the film world, execution and polish (if it is right to call CG that) are common, while spirit is rare, and so I rate this one right up.
