Blu-ray Release: Only Lovers Left Alive

August 19, 2014

Only Lovers Left Alive Blu-ray

After premiering at TIFF last year, Sony Pictures Classics is releasing Only Lovers Left Alive on Blu-ray today.  Directed by Jim Jarmusch, the film follows depressed musician Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and his wife Eve (Tilda Swinton), a pair of lonely vampires drifting through the nightlife of Detroit.

The wryly mannered stylings of the film are a little too offbeat for my taste, and the lengthy running time can feel self indulgent.  But even if we are left a little cold, we can at least admire the ambient sounds, stylish cinematography and good performances that make the film unique.  And Only Lovers Left Alive certainly has a lot of fans who are going to be delighted to revisit the film on Blu-ray.

The Blu-ray includes the production documentary Travelling at Night with Jim Jarmusch, deleted and extended scenes, and the Yasmine Hamden music video “Hal.”

Only Lovers Left Alive is 123 minutes and rated 14A.
