Fulfills the adage that "great films succeed in spite of themselves"

I admit to FF'ing through most of the Peter Fonda bits but is there anything more beautiful than Elina Löwensohn in Black & White?

This film is so of it's time (the Hal Hartley era of indie cinema) The MVB needle drop! Elina's 'pain of fleeting joy' speech to the Verve cut is pure a/v cinema

Not surprised at all when David Lynch showed up. And I've actually read one of Galaxy Craze's books lol


“The pain of fleeting joy"
Any flick that bursts out of the gate to My Bloody Valentine's "SOON" has a long way to drop before it hits failure.

I watched this thing a dozen times back in the 90s. The good parts are so beautiful I accepted the bad parts, the bad acting, the silly philosophy without problem.
"We will take the body"

Summary: This ultra-hip, post-modern vampire tale is set in contemporary New York City. Members of a dysfunctional family of vampires are trying to come to terms with each other, in the wake of their father's death. Meanwhile, they are being hunted by Dr. Van Helsing and his hapless nephew. As in all good vampire movies, forces of love are pitted against forces of destruction.
