Only Lovers Left Alive — Extremely low key but still delicious vampire movie — 9*/10

  • Scenario: Very slow development, as low key as it gets, no action at all, but you get to feel everything down to the smallest particle, which, in a way, is how these vampires go through life. The result is much better than what the synopsis might entail.
  • Dialogs: Simple, elegant and right with the tone.
  • Characters: Grounded, as real as you can make those, and with a lot of depth.
  • Actors: Beautiful work on the part of everyone. Cast members include Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin, Jeffrey Wright, and John Hurt.
  • Photography: Smooth camera work, amazingly detailed and well thought out sets and decors.
  • Sound: Perfect music and score, very moody.
  • Special effects: None.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Anyone who likes a slow developing and moody movie or vampire aficionados who don't mind the lack of action. A must discover.
