Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

Jim Jarmusch directs Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska in this vampire film where two wan immortals bum around being glum.

Who decided haughty, emaciated posh Brits were the epitome of cool? The strange thing is these parasites are an accurate representation of their sort… self centred, snobbish and with an unfair advantage in artistic endeavours. They see their privilege as a curse and the rest of us as “zombies” they have to endure… but not share their world with. Ugh! The shitty thing is these parallels are accidental rather than an intentionally damning statement on the advantage and attitudes of the ruling class. Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin inject a bit of oomph and life into their smaller supporting roles. It looks striking, But essentially you are stuck in the company of a couple of fey dandies looking down at us from the miserable ivory towers. No thank you.
