A very good movie

In this age where the American cinema is overly ruled by the massive blockbusters which have to make 100 millions of dollars in their opening weekend, most of the indie directors seem to be struggling to keep working but some of them, like Jim Jarmusch, still manage to deliver their unique blend of movies, imperturbable and indifferent to the current trends. To be honest, Jarmusch has never been really productive (he usually releases a movie once every 4 years) and I think the last time he really impressed me was back in 1999 with 'Ghost Dog'. Well, after more than 15 years , he made again something that I really enjoyed. Indeed, somehow, the vampires have been an endless source of inspiration for the filmmakers, ever since 'Nosferatu' was made almost 100 years ago, and while most of the mainstream features like 'Twilight' are terribly underwhelming, Jarmusch managed to come up with something fresh and original. Indeed, instead of the usual boring action scenes, you get here a fascinating and melancholic character study about some of these night creatures. Once again with this director, the soundtrack was just perfect and mesmerizing and, with Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, he couldn't have found some better actors. To be honest, there were a couple of things that did bother me though. For example, how on Earth a vampire should be able to die like that? It seemed to be an odd choice. Furthermore, those vampires were apparently filthy rich and with such wealth, it shouldn't be really difficult to find some blood and, yet, they act as if they are going to die soon. To conclude, even though it was probably missing something to be truly amazing, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you're interested in Jim Jarmusch's work.
