''That morning I was not yet a vampire, and I saw my last sunrise. I remember it completely, and yet I can't recall any sunrise before it. I watched its whole magnificence for the last time as if it were the first. And then I said farewell to sun light, and set out to become what I became.''
A vampire named Louis tells his epic life story that covers love, betrayal, loneliness, and hunger.
Brad Pitt: Louis de Pointe du Lac
Tom Cruise: Lestat de Lioncourt
Kirsten Dunst: Claudia
This soulful account of a vampire based on Anne Rice's amazing novel which i have yet to read will always capture and shudder my soul.
The score melts me each time, the supernatural feel, the timeless narration by Brad. Saw this when i was little and it has stayed with me ever since, every viewing it still satisfies me.
Brad pitt as Louis really conveys his conscientious morally sided Vampire who hasn't like his other brethren lost his humanity. He seems to convey not just in his words but in his face a soulful longing and sulky peaceful yearning.
Tom Cruise as Lestat is charged with energy in a performance that really does let Tom go wild and chew up the secnery. His depiction and his performance with the material show what a fang-tastic actor he truly is. Cruise at his peak.
Also Kirsten Dunst as little Claudia shines also, even at her young age you could always tell she was destined for great things.
My best Vampire film along with Bram Stoker's Dracula. A classic in every sense that will haunt you and mesmerize you and make you feel good no matter how many times you watch. Always reach the end satisfied, and its a wondrous feeling.
''Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminately and so shall we. For no creatures under God are as we are, none so like him as ourselves.''
