For February I’m going to review love stories, cause you know the whole Valentines Day deal 🙂 Hopefully you’ll find something new and fun to watch.
My first movie is Only Lovers Left Alive.
I love vampire movies, and I couldn’t pass up the one with Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton. I really liked this movie. I felt Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton) were the perfect vampires. Removed from the world by time and experience, they still wrapped up in it. Adam, hating the changes, depressed by human stupidity, wallows in his own self-absorbed despondency and fear. Eve, loving and living, finds the joy and beauty in the world even after all these centuries.
It is a visually stunning movie (and not just because Adam rarely wears a shirt). It’s beautifully filmed. This is, god I don’t know what to call it, it’s a section of their lives, a glimpse into their world.
While the movie ends, the story doesn’t. This is a slow story of a small part of what it might be like to live and love for eternity.
And while, yes they are vampires, they are so much more. Not a lot of blood, and what is shown is all bottled up. Not for kids, too slow, and there is nudity but no sex.
Sounds good! What’s not to like about a Tom Hiddleston movie?
I did mention he’s shirtless right?
I read a review of this film and was intrigued by the concept and Tilda Swinton. If it has Tilda Swinton, I’m in. It’s on my Netflix queue.
It was really good.
