Trailer for Only Lovers Left Alive starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston


Throughout the years director Jim Jarmusch‘s subject matter has touched virtually every corner of film 101. It’s like he’s going from chapter to chapter giving us and him, the run down of films one needs to do in order to be great. I don’t know if this movie constitutes great, but like I said, he’s challenging himself constantly. His latest, Only Lovers Left Alive, is another hip look at vampires, only this time it’s through Jim’s eye and who better to play two star crossed and androgynous bloodsuckers than Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk About Kevin) and Tom Hiddleston (THOR). Although these two are in their late thirties early forties in real life, they do young and hip very well, at least from what I’ve seen in this trailer. Don’t know if folks will be rushing out to see it, but I don’t think Jim Jarmusch would have it either way.

By the way, if your new to Jim and would like to see one of his classic films, might I suggest Mystery Train.


Only Lovers Left Alive, written & directed by Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Limits of Control) takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician (Tom Hiddleston), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Tilda Swinton). Their love story has endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, and Anton Yelchin also star in the film which premiered at Cannes, though Sony Pictures Classics has no release date.


Trailer for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel Starring Ralph Fiennes arrives


Wes Anderson…what can I say about his films? He never veers from the old/adolescent, protagonist, his films have all the same angles and cast for that fact and Mark Motherbaugh is always a shoe-in for the soundtrack. So why do we love his films? Could it be because he get’s amazing talent to do characters that they would otherwise never get a chance to play? Maybe it’s because we want to see what the chap has up his sleeve visually.

For me, it’s all of the above. Since Rushmore (the 1998 film starring Jason Schwartzman) I have been a fan of his dark and dry humor, his seemingly flippant attitude towards death, the awkward sex scenes and his need to make humans look silly. He’s a modern day storyteller, minus the rocking chair. As a writer, I am always amazed at how he juggles so many character’s in his films. I can barely handle one, in my sophomoric attempts at writing a script.  Of course, he’s famous enough to have others help him, which is what I need, so if anybody would love to give me some lessons on developing character’s in a movie please hit me back.

BEHOLD…the trailer for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel starring Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Léa Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and introducing Tony Revolori. The film is currently set for a March 17, 2014 release.

David Bowie’s new video for The Stars (Are Out Tonight) featuring Tilda Swinton

David Bowie’s first album in a decade “The Next Day”, releases on March 12, 2013, but today we’ve been given a treat with a video for his single release The Stars (Are Out Tonight) available now on Itunes. The video directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways,Teenage Dream) is a clash of ideas, mainly Bowie coming to grips with the level of detachment he may be experiencing with the world today. The other is very David Lynch, there I said it. Two great taste that taste good together. Enjoy!
