There’s certainly no shortage of vampire films these days, but there aren’t a lot of vampire films that feature bloodsuckers literally sucking on blood popsicles and praising the handiwork of Nikolai Tesla. Adam (Tom Hiddleston) is a centuries-old vampire who currently lives in decrepit Detroit. His expansive house doubles as a recording studio; he’s also a legendary underground psych-rock musician. Eve (a perfectly cast Tilda Swinton) is his estranged vampire wife, living across the world in Tangier. Adam is morose and contemplating suicide, and when Eve finds out, she jumps on the first flight to Detroit (a night flight of course) and tries to get him to loosen up a bit and enjoy the undead life. This is ultra-hip director Jim Jarmusch’s (Dead Man) first stab at the horror genre, and it mostly succeeds, thanks in large part to Jarmusch’s brand of off-kilter dark humor

Charleston City Paper You won't find the celebrated Boyhood on this list of 2014's best A calendar year is as arbitrary a way to recognize greatness as a numbered list is, especially in an era when so many people see movies in places other than theaters and in years other than the year of their release. by Scott Renshaw 12/31/2014
Colorado Springs Independent Only Lovers Left Alive, a vampire commentary, is Jim Jarmusch's best film in years Jarmusch has a blast re-contextualizing genre rules we knew by heart. Here, he infiltrates the bloodstream of the "vampire movie" with a deadpan critique of cultural vapidity. by Daniel Barnes 05/28/2014
