Rene Rodriguez(Miami Herald): Even vampires go the blues.
Bill Goodykoontz(Arizona Republic): This is a pellicle that finds horror not in the highest, but in the mundane. That alone makes it a worthwhile inlet in a genre that it the two inhabits and rises above.
Tom Long(Detroit News): Somehow it's altogether very entertaining and weird and fitting, with Detroit looking like a place at all vampire would be happy to be.
Moira MacDonald(Seattle Times): You dress in't so much watch this movie at the same time that slink into it, joining an improbable pair of lovers and enjoying their slouchy gentility.
Calvin Wilson(St. Louis Post-Dispatch): "Only Lovers Left Alive" breathes recent and intriguing life into the vulture genre.
Liam Lacey(Globe and Mail): Only Lovers is in such a manner fluidly edited and thinly plotted that it feels almost off-hand; yet, it's moreover made with great care, beautifully lit and division-designed to an eyelash.
David Nusair(Reel Film Reviews): …Jarmusch seems satisfied to eschew character development and piece of ground advances in favor of a same specific (and palpable) mood.
Blake Howard(2UE That Movie Show): There's not a wasted abet, no imperfectly conceived moments. Like the characters, it feels without beginning.
John Urbancich(Your Movies (cleveland.com)): Akron-sphere product Jim Jarmusch offers up human being of his most accessible films, a parasite piece for the ages — literally.
Kevin Carr(7M Pictures): While it's not totally a horror movie, Jarmusch has more fun playing in horror's back thirty-six inches.
Tim Brayton(Antagony & Ecstasy): [The] uncompounded weirdness of it more than trumps judgments that try to pin it down into good or rascally, worth-it or not-worth-it.
Victoria Alexander(Las Vegas Informer): Swinton and Hiddleston are affecting the senses creatures giving depth to the vampire-bat hagiography.
Scott Weinberg(FEARnet): "Before Sunset by Vampires" may be simplistic, on the other hand it's meant as to a great height praise.
John Beifuss(Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)): Wanda Jackson's 'Funnel of Love' introduces us to Jarmusch's genteel vampires, his pale lovers, his connoisseurs of deceit and oenophiles of blood, swanning and swooning through eternity, together forever even if continents apart.
Robert Denerstein(Movie Habit): Jarmusch's vampires live in the (cultural) end of general condition of affairs
MaryAnn Johanson(Flick Filosopher): I indigence to live in this movie. I want to crawl inside it and be bent into ~s up in its lap and stay there forever.
Ken Hanke(Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)): Elegant, somber, literary-minded, otherworldy, inexpressibly sad, sometimes very funny. Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is as well-as; not only-but also; not only-but; not alone-but one of the most unusual bloodsucker pictures ever made and probably the same of the best.
Cameron Meier(Orlando Weekly): Only Lovers is forward par with Jarmusch's Down ~ dint of. Law, which also failed to capitalize on its considerable strengths.
Boo Allen(Denton Record Chronicle (TX)): Dull, cheerless, and dreadful.
Matt Brunson(Creative Loafing): A bloodsucker tradition that's every bit taken in the character of unique as Let the Right One In.
Kelly Vance(East Bay Express): As in greatest number pipe dreams, there are a hardly any stumbling blocks.
Jeffrey Overstreet(Looking Closer): This is Jim Jarmusch's gloomy and mournful version of Wim Wenders Wings of Desire … immortals attention over a decaying city … burdened ~ the agency of disappointment.
Mike Scott(Times-Picayune): As noble and as literary as Jim Jarmusch's agonizingly inactive film is, its assets carry it singly so far.
Matt Kelemen(AspectRatio.us): Ava's infringement into Adam and Eve's being isn't far removed from Ezster Balint's Cousin Eva dropping in up~ the body John Lurie and Richard Edson in Stranger Than Paradise. Jarmusch aficionados elect get it; Twilight fans won't.
