Only Lovers Left Alive

Check out Squrl who perform on the soundtrack of Only Lovers Left Alive. You might like to know that Jim Jarmusch, the director of this film is also a member of Squrl.

Since watching the film Only Lovers Left Alive I bought the soundtrack, which complements the film. Film and music generate a dark mood and atmosphere. The music is psychedelic/Gothic and creates a unique and distinctive sound.

Only Lovers Left Alive is a must see for those who are seeking an intelligent and thought provoking Gothic tale and mood piece. It’s not a traditional vampire story that relies on blood-sucking horror and violence to sustain an audience. The mood, tone and music create a film that relies more on atmosphere rather than drama. It’s a thematically complex piece as well as including traditional Gothic themes, such as the romantic outsider. It also interweaves modern concerns, such as urban decay and climate change. I gave this film a five out of five. Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston’s performances were impressive.
