  • Only Lovers Left Alive 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Apr, 2014 1

    After films like DEAD MAN, GHOST DOG, and now ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, I'm convinced that Jim Jarmusch is not only an independent cinema maverick, but also the master of the art house genre film. Definitely inspired by the likes of THE HUNGER and NEAR DARK, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a fresh and interesting take on the vampire film.

  • Noah 2014

    ★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2014

After a few year hiatus following PULP FICTION, the world couldn't wait to see the next film from arguably the most influential director since Orson Welles. Eventually I did get to see JACKIE BROWN and to this day it's still my favorite Q.T. movie.

    I'm in as soon as the Miramax title shows…
