Machine Head

Spring break is broken.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Once saddled with the unimaginative-but-accurate title of Spring Break Killer, the indie thriller Machine Head has several things going for it: actual direction, a location with built-in production value, a solid handle on ambience, a terrific soundtrack and it's not based on the intolerable, same-named Bush song, so omnipresent on FM radio in the mid-'90s.

Only Lovers Left Alive

The new vampire flick from revered indie director Jim Jarmusch is equal parts brooding and intoxicating.


Drama

Phil Bacharach

The first thing you might notice about the vampires in Only Lovers Left Alive is how effortlessly cosmopolitan they are. Smart, artsy, sexy — these undead are unequivocally cool. That’s no surprise when you consider this is the work of masterful indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, a purveyor of idiosyncratic cool whose credits include Night on EarthGhost Dog: The Way of the Samurai and Broken Flowers.
