Midnights: ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE
July 8, 2017 @ 11:55 pm
“Jarmusch has created a requiem for a way of looking at life that is being increasingly relegated to the shadows. Yet it’s the kind of dirge that, perversely and profoundly, sends you back out into a volatile world with a glad-to-be-alive high.” – Time Out New York
“The film is a study in shared melancholy, of facing forever, and whether holding hands while it happens makes it any less intolerable. Jarmusch ultimately finds creativity, the product of human imagination, to be reason enough to face any indignation and hardship.” – Brooklyn Magazine
“Like all Jarmusch films, Only Lovers Left Alive is very funny, with numerous allusive puns and terrific exchanges that follow from the indulgence of urges… the charms of Jim Jarmusch’s funny, sexy, and elegiac vampire movie speak for themselves.” – Slant Magazine
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician (Tom Hiddleston), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Tilda Swinton). Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
Dir. Jim Jarmusch. 2014. 122 min.
Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
