Only Lovers Left Alive is the best film in years by writer/director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Mystery Train, Down By Law). Stylish, hip and droll, it's the nocturnal tale of two vampires in love, and their quest for amusement and an untainted supply of blood. Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Marvel's The Avengers and the Thor films) and the ageless Tilda Swinton (I Am Love, Michael Clayton) play Adam and Eve, vampires who have been lovers for centuries. He's a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of Detroit; she's a lover of knowledge residing in Tangier—but they're soulmates. Adam's music is eagerly received by the zombies (i.e. humans) such as rock promoter Ian (Anton Yelchin, Star Trek), whose adulation threatens his need for solitude. Sensing Adam's growing angst and despair, Eve makes a transatlantic journey to see him, despite the difficulties of travelling by day. Their joyful reunion is interrupted by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska, Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right), who brings trouble in her wake. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music by Jarmusch's band Squrl, and sly humor, Only Lovers Left Alive is a hypnotic meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love. With John Hurt and Jeffrey Wright. Official Web Site

A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of the novel by Larry Brown (Big Bad Love), celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Joe brings Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas) back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble—until he meets Gary (Tye Sheridan, Mud, The Tree of Life), a hard-luck kid who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector. Joe bosses crews at a lumber company, and he hires Gary, a wayward teenager who has never spent a day in school, and his unreliable father. When Gary finds himself facing a threat greater than he knows how to handle, he turns to Joe—and sets off a chain of events that play out with the brutal inevitability of tragedy and the beauty of a last stab at salvation.

Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century's greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a loner who worked as a nanny most of her life, and shot photos constantly everywhere she went, taking over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Amateur historian John Maloof bought the contents of her storage locker by chance at an auction, and soon became obsessed with trying to learn more about the mysterious recluse. The first trace he was able to find of her was her recent obituary. Since then Maloof has organized many acclaimed exhibits of her work, and is crusading to put this prolific photographer into the history books. In Finding Vivian Maier, Maloof and co-director Charlie Siskel's captivating documentary, Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

Writer-director John Turturro gives Woody Allen his best on-screen role in years, as an unlikely pimp. Turturro himself stars as the title character, in this hilarious yet heartfelt comedy about the endless quest for happiness through sex and love. Murray (Allen), a going-out-of-business New York bookseller, is pals with Fioranvante (Turturro), who runs a modest florist shop. When Murray's beautiful dermatologist Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone) mentions she's looking for a man to participate in a threesome with her and her equally gorgeous friend Selima (Sofia Vergara), Murray recognizes the financial potential of this proposal and sets about convincing Fioravante to consummate the deal. While Fioravante is at first understandably hesitant, he needs the cash and comes to believe that there are worse ways to make a living than by making two attention-starved women happy. Meanwhile Murray has come across an unusual second client for Fioravante: Avigal (Vanessa Paradis), the lonely widow of a revered Hasidic rabbi. Avigal's every move is watched by the suspicious and jealous Dovi (Liev Schreiber), which makes assignations with her hazardous. As Fioravante makes his rounds through the bedrooms of Dr. Parker and Selima, as well as his more chaste meetings with Avigal, Murray discovers it's not so easy to be a pimp and finds out that the clash between the secular and the Orthodox must be faced sooner or later.
