Pinhole Movie Reviews

Only Lovers Left Alive by jaemskeray

Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston are married vampires, having been alive and married for a very long time, the movie meets their story in the modern day.  Our protagonists’s main problem is that humans have contaminated their own blood, so vampires, most of whom have died off, must go to extreme measures to get the blood purified.  Because they cannot age, the characters are stuck in a certain emotional state forever: Adam, the manpire, sulks and is a social recluse, and Eve, the girlpire, has a glass-half-full outlook on life (and that glass is full of blood!!!!).  Its a very romantic relationship they have, their personalities are two sides of the same coin.  The story moves intentionally slow at first, reflecting their long and meandering existence.  But despite the film’s circuitous nature, I highly enjoyed it.  As I watched, I felt a sense that this vampire movie is kinda different than others in its romanticism.  Worth Watching.
