Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

A depressed musician reunites with his lover, though their romance - which has already endured several centuries - is disrupted by the arrival of uncontrollable younger sister.

Somnambulant vampire tale is staged as an entertaining, but almost bleak reflection on today's civilization - from a deeply humanist perspective.

Maltin**: "Hip but terminally boring portrait...Intriguing at first, beautifully designed and well acted, but as writer-director Jarmusch portrays ennui he inspires a similar response from his aidience. Jarmusch devotees will probably disagree."
