Only Lovers Left Alive (R)

Even vampires get the blues. In Jim Jarmusch’s entrancing Only Lovers Left Alive, Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play Adam and Eve, centuries-old bloodsuckers who have been in love for so long, they feel like they’re next to each other even when they’re on separate continents. Adam is a musician with a cult following who is holed up in a creepy mansion in a desolate neighborhood in Detroit. He relies on an eager young fan (Anton Yelchin) to fetch him the analog equipment he needs (Jarmusch’s camera lovingly caresses old-school vinyl LPs and reel-to-reel recorders), and he has a deal with a doctor (Jeffrey Wright) to provide him with a steady supply of his favorite nectar, type O-negative.
