Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska, is easily one of my favorite films of the year. It’s a fantastic hang-out movie that could just as easily have the title Before Sunrise. Some people will be “bored” with it, but I feel sorry for them. This new clip from Indiewire shows off a bit of the film’s flavor.
“Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?”
