Hipster vampires inhabit Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive', a witty allegory about the undead bleeding with great music. #cannes2013

Jim Jarmusch's vampire comedy (!) Only Lovers Left Alive is lean & literate deadpan fun. Hiddleston/Swinton are a dream team. #Cannes2013

Hard not to read ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE as a direct rebuke of NW Refn - here is elaborate style enhancing, not smothering, substance.

Only Lovers Left Alive - Dysfunctional vampires with long hair & iPhones go from Detroit to Tangier. Awkward laughs, history lessons abound.

Only Lovers Left Alive will have fans for a long long time. Very good. Swinton and Hiddleston rock. #Cannes

Jarmusch's ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE - dust off your best 'fresh blood' gags, this does lovely fresh things with the vampire genre...

Only Lovers Left Alive (Jarmusch): 77. For close to an hour this was shaping up to be one of my favorite films ever. A bit heartbreaking.

Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a cleverly scripted, surprisingly witty vampire flick. One of my favourite films of #Cannes2013

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE may be Jim Jarmusch's most accomplished film to date featuring a terrific Tom Hiddleston. It kicks ass. #cannes2013

"You drank Ian!" Jarmusch's ONLY LOVERS a droll, deadpan, entirely lovely vampire romance. Swinton and Hiddleston superb. Hurt magnificent.

The French critics are really going bananas over Blue is the Warmest Color (original title: La Vie d'Adele). Don't know if sex shy Spielberg will go for it. Adèle Exarchopoulos could get the consolation prize for Actress if the film doesn't get the Palme.
