[Sundance ’14 Review] ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ Moody and Eccentric

Man, I’m way behind on our Sundance covering and about to do some early spring cleaning.

Here we have Ryan Daley’s thoughts on Jim Jarmusch’s indie vampire film, Only Lovers Left Alive, releasing April 11 via Sony Pictures Classic.

With its meandering tracking shots, laconic montages, and random guitar fetishism, Only Lovers Left Alive is the obvious brainchild of its writer/director, Jim Jarmusch, as eccentric a filmmaker to ever hold a camera,” explains Daley in his review.

It’s best to walk into Only Lovers Left Alive knowing what you’re in for and willing to submit entirely. The plot is a mere whisper. There’s some conflict, but it’s minimal. But there’s music. And mood. And romance. Jarmusch’s film is like a low, gravelly conversation overheard between two old souls late in the night. Sometimes it’s nice to just spend a quiet evening with an old eccentric friend.
