CineInsomnia: Only Lovers Left Alive

A vampire love story about as far removed from Twilight as possible, Jim Jarmusch's recent swoonily romantic feature stars Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston (Thor's Loki)both are dead ringers for the undeadas soulmates named (what else?) Adam and Eve, who must adjust to the changing world around them. Droll and thorougly Jarmusch, Only Lovers Left Alive's Adam is a depressed musicianhe once wrote for Schubertlamenting the current state of humanity. Eve, on the other hand, embraces modern life a bit more, paying a visit to Jack White's childhood home during a trip to Detroit. The irony, of course, is that it takes these undead perspectives to point out that the humans are actually the ones lacking in life. Catch a 35mm-print screening of the film as part of the Nuart's late-night series.
