Only Lovers Left Alive

Only Lovers Left Alive ★★★★½

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

This review may contain spoilers.

Ghostly hypno nostalgia and the immortal longing for death and love. Polluted humanity and it's 'zombie' blood. Missing the purity of the days of yore. Rhythm & blues, entanglement and a wooden bullet.

A full bodied soundtrack mostly made up of Jozef Van Wissem and SQÜRL, the supergroup that is Jim Jarmusch, Carter Logan and Shane Stoneback.

A complementary lute is sewn into modern guitar, world percussion, echo, anticipation and vibrato giving way to pure visual and aural dimensions of Vampire Cinema.

This is Detroit, Rock n' Roll and Type-O negateeve-O. Self obsession is a waste of living. Be lucky in love and spin all the records you can. Be a planet sized diamond emitting the music of a gigantic gong.

Undying love and complex structures crumbling. The ties that bind. Adam and Eve are doomed immaculate. Hiddleston and Swinton were fated to play these roles. Eve's sister Ava (Wasikowska) is incorrigible in her disdain. Poor Ian ( RIP Anton Yelchin).

"I might have been born at night, but I wasn't born last night."

Time crawls arachnid. Some live, some die (RIP John Hurt). Sunglasses in the nighttime and music remains the same. A mystifying magick all over the world. Where do we go from here? Our lives are composed of our need to feed. We are addicted to the sustenance.
To live is to suffer. Find meaning.

"When you separate an entwined particle and you move both parts away from the other, even at opposite ends of the universe, if you alter or affect one, the other will be identically altered or affected. Spooky."
