Movie Review: Alan Partridge (2013)

Written by Anthony Sargon

“Alan Partridge”, or “Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa” as it was originally released in the U.K, is the big-screen debut of Steve Coogan’s fictional radio-host character; Alan Partridge. I walked into the flick with absolutely no prior knowledge of the character, so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. To my delight, I discovered a funny and surprisingly smart comedy that I can easily recommend to anyone.

Review: 'Only Lovers' a Moody Vampire Movie

"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. Almost nothing happens in this minor-key drift through a desolate, imperiled modern world, and yet it is the perennial downtown filmmaker's best work in many years, probably since 1995's "Dead Man," with which it shares a sense of quiet, heady, perilous passage.

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. The woman's younger sister considers them condescending snobs, but perhaps that's just a negative way of acknowledging that, given hundreds of years of years of exposure to art and culture, one would be a fool not to have developed a high level of discrimination in such matters.
