"The Thin Man" with blood cocktails, an ode to hipsterism through the ages, a mainline shot of cool and a playful tribute to artistic fetishism, Jim Jarmusch's vampire romance "Only Lovers Left Alive" is an addictive mood and tone piece, a nocturnal reverie that incidentally celebrates a marriage that has lasted untold centuries.Vampire stories come in all shapes and sizes and the blessed and afflicted couple here is well-dressed, madly sophisticated, has impeccable taste in music and literature (the couple's closest friend is Christopher Marlowe) and is still in love like newlyweds. In the not quite as depopulated streets of Tangier, Eve (Tilda Swinton) seeks out Marlowe (John Hurt), whose Shakespeare connection is bandied about.Wasikowska supplies antic, intentionally grating abandon as the dangerous sister, Yelchin is sweet as Adam's flunky and Hurt presents his 16th century playwright as a crusty old wise man.
