A vampire tale from director Jim Jarmusch

Jim Jarmusch’s latest film "Only Lovers Left Alive" tells the story of Adam and Eve, a pair of vampires who live on separate continents. Eve is in Tangier with another vampire, Marlowe, and Adam is in Detroit. Eve comes to Detroit to be with Adam. Blood is in short supply -- vampires no longer bite someone in the neck, but instead get blood supplied like a drug. Film contributor Milos Stehlik tells us why this is no ordinary vampire movie.
