Thanks to Madman Entertainment we have 5 copies of Only Lovers Left Alive to giveaway (5 Blu Rays).
Only Lovers Left Alive is the kind of film that continues to linger in my consciousness. Revisiting the score, over and again, images return again and again. There’s not a wasted second, no imperfectly conceived moments. Like the characters, it feels eternal.
With this in mind it’s hard to imagine characters more alienated than ones that are otherworldly, or more specifically, vampires. These aren’t the vampires of today, overdosing in teenage brooding and sexual tension. Jarmusch’s latest is a theft of meaning, bringing them back to a more simpler definition – bloodsuckers who live for an eternity, lest they be killed along the way (but it won’t be through lame institutions such as garlic – these guys are killed via ‘bad’ blood, that of alcoholics or drug addicts).
In his modern interpretation of Vampire mythology, legendary director Jim Jarmusch unites Oscar winner Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston for this sexy, stylish ride.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers, an underground musician, Adam (Tom Hiddleston), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover, Eve (Tilda Swinton).
Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska).
Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
How do you win?
