FRANK is very loosely based on the strange career of England’s Frank Sidebottom, who had […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, Mia Wasikowska, Jeffrey Wright Writer: Jim Jarmusch Director: Jim Jarmusch Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: April 11, 2014 The notion of watching Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston play characters who are besotted with one another will be enough to get quite a few people into the movie theatre, and those who come for that reason won’t be disappointed by the actors. However, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is not only a love story but also a vampire film. Its narrative style suggests that writer/director Jim Jarmusch hasn’t turned on […]Read On »
