A True Jarmusch Romance: Only Lovers Left Alive

Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive finds originality in its approach to the now-strained genre, the vampire film that for so long has initially utilised to spook the vulnerable audiences, and later on to romanticise their existence, capturing the hearts of the frail and desperate hearts; complexity could easily be lost from such a genre, especially when under the hands of a more simple filmmaker, hoping to exploit the rise of their trend rather than to be passionately driven and to create something ground-breaking. 703 more words

Re: Reader, I Saw the Adaptation

I was eager to see this adaptation of Jane Eyre, in part because I wanted to compare with North & South (written by Charlotte Bronte’s contemporary and BFF, Elizabeth Gaskell) and in part because I wanted to prepare for Mia Wasikowska’s visit to similar Victorian Gothic territory in this fall’s Crimson Peak. 255 more words
