In Jim Jarmusch’s deliciously stylish vampire flick, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton) are eons-old lovers, vampires currently living apart (she in Tangier, he in Detroit) who maintain a close bond and chat via FaceTime. The plasma that slakes the blood lust of these sophisticated modern vampires comes from banks, medically supervised and quality controlled. The film has a weakness for the obvious in dialogue and a carelessness in plotting, but its sins of logic and historical name-dropping scarcely draw blood in this elegant, broodingly witty reflection on the modern world through the prism of the long view. Rated R. 122 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. See review.
