Since his debut 30 years ago with Stranger Than Paradise, Jim Jarmusch has been making deadpan movies about affectless characters, so it's about time he went all the way and made a vampire movie. The otherworldly Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston (Marvel villain Loki) play a pair of bloodless, centuries-old lovers named Adam and Eve. But their union is threatened by the disruptive presence of her seductive younger sister (Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska). If vampire movie fans see in Swinton's performance an homage to lookalike David Bowie's turn in The Hunger, well, that's probably cool with Jarmusch.
