Have you seen this film yet?
It looks particularly alluring with the two main characters; vampires aptly named Adam and Eve, moving about in the shadows of exotic rooms; lovers who have endured centuries both together and apart. Vampires that seem both accepting of their fate and yet bored by it. I wonder if I lived for centuries how would I manage not to be bored? What is it that sustains me on a daily basis? Without the frame-work of a mortal life how would I manage to remain connected to and excited by the world?
Would infinite time dull the edges of the things that I love? Reading, writing, traveling, listening to every classical composers works….it all takes time. Walking through art museums, watching movies. Without the need to hurry through life how would I manage the vastness of it? It appears that vampires wrestle with these issues just as we do and I wonder how Adam and Eve will manage it in Only Lovers Left Alive.
