"Only Lovers Left Alive (Jim Jarmusch, 2014)"



Really dug this shit. My nigga Jimmy said that he had action scenes written, but when it was requested he have more action scenes, he took all the action scenes out and make it as sparse as possible.

The film is really hypnotic and the scenes of Adam driving Eve around a hallowed out Detroit was a nice bit of social commentary, that I'll let y'all discuss.

Also, Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton have amazing chemistry. And without that chemistry this film would not work at all. The vampire shit comes second to these two character's relationship to each other.

Surprisingly, there's a lot off humor in this film, that had me and a few of my colleagues laughing hard.

Just a word of advice, have patience and see this when you're awake as this is a slow talky film about love and life.

America from 9:00 on:
