Only Lovers Left Alive (Review)- "Dead on the Inside"


The opening scene of “Only Lovers Left Alive” promises a far better movie than it delivers. A sea of stars in the night sky slowly reveal themselves to be grooves on a vinyl record; as soon as it starts spinning, we are shown bird’s eye view shots of vampire lovers Adam and Eve (Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton) in bedrooms in different continents, as the camera keeps spinning. 578 more words

2014 Movie Review

A Writer.

I still have my VHS movies.  I think my VCR still works, though the remote is broken, and it’s not hooked up anymore.
