Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 45: Fri Feb 14

Only Lovers Left Alive (Jarmusch, 2013): Rio Cinema 11.30pm
& Genesis Cinema, 8.30pm

The Rio Cinema is invariably the place to visit on Valentine's Day. This year is no different (with the Genesis getting in on the action if you want to go to an earlier screening). Only Lovers Left Alive is the latest film from Jim Jarmusch, and you can see the movie a week before its official release.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Little White Lies review:

Hilarious, bittersweet, nostlagic and philosophical. One of this amazing director's finest achievements. A great piece of art that is in thrall to great pieces of art.
David Jenkins

Here (and above) is the trailer.
