This is going to cause a lot of abuse to come my way, but I saw Only Lovers Left Alive last night and…fuck Loki.
Loki dramatically fell from the top of the “sexiest characters in a movie” list.
Adam took his place (by far Tom Hiddleston at his sexiest, despite the character’s depression) in a heartbeat and only thanks to Tilda Swinton’s Eve and the ability of Jim Jarmusch to depict the two of them as one entity that can only function when they are at each other’s side. Tilda portrays the best female vampire I have ever seen (and I believe I have seen/read anything there is to see or read about vampires) and Tom is possibly the only actor I have seen who managed to portray a deeply depressed, suicidal character with a funny twist and made the result sound and look CREDIBLE!
These two are great together. The film is sensual, funny, tender. And it has one of the best soundtracks I have heard in forever.
Ok. I’m ready for the stoning, Lokilovers.
(Before you do that you might want to at least acknowledge there were no spoilers here. Be gentle with the stones. O_O)
