Watching Jim Jarmush films is like drinking a pint of Guinness. This is one of those films that just isn't for everyone, but if you've developed that acquired taste you'll love it.
This movie is flat out super cool.
His last few films left very little impression on me, but Only Lovers Left Alive is a super stylish, character driven modern day masterpiece. His best since Ghostdog. Might even say Jarmusch's best film ever. This film has indie classic written all over it. Mark my words, film buffs will be pulling this hidden gem out in conversations for years to come.
Such a pleasure to watch. Atta boy Jim!
