The Thin Man with blood cocktails, an ode to hipsterism through the ages, a mainline shot of cool and a playful tribute to artistic fetishism, Jim Jarmusch’s vampire romance Only Lovers Left Alive is an addictive mood and tone piece, a nocturnal reverie that incidentally celebrates a marriage that has lasted untold centuries.” Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter. Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, and John Hurt star in this 2013 nominee for the Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or.
