10 Great Music Films You Might Not Have Seen

Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)
Only Jim Jarmusch could make vampires cool again, casting Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as time-weary lovers Adam and Eve in “Only Lovers Left Alive.” Adam is a musician who has tucked himself away in a crumbling corner of Detroit, making haunting underground rock music (akin to The Velvet Underground), that was actually penned by Jarmusch and his band, SQÜRL. The film also features two live performances, one by White Hills, who coincidentally have a song called “Let the Right One In,” as well as a beautiful performance by Lebanese singer Yasmine Hamdan.
