Only Lovers Left Alive

As someone who's largely apathetic about vampires stemming from a childhood where I was irrationally terrified of them (and still sleep with the covers up to my neck out of habit), I'm surprised by how much I liked this movie. "Liked" being the operative word here. I'm not rushing out to see it again in theaters. I don't have the DVD pre-ordered on Amazon (though I wouldn't mind getting my hands on that soundtrack). I just found it overall charming.

I'm now looking forward to devouring more of Jarmusch's work as my only other experience with him had been Broken Flowers which I found to be a snooze until the last five minutes. Seeing what he's like when he's on his game gives me a renewed confidence in actually exploring his other films. Or at least the recommended ones.
