Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)
highly underrated, often over-looked
When you ask someone to name the best movies to come out of the
early-mid 90's, not many people would mention this movie. That's too
It isn't American Beauty deep, but the film presents real human
emotions through the surreal notion of vampires. Cinematography, set
design, and score are top notch. It doesn't look dated at all,
particularly in this day in age of CG, blue screen galore.
The acting....i hate to admit, because i'm not by any means a brad pitt
or tom cruise fan....is pretty darn good. This was the first film I saw
tom cruise in and thought (gee...the pretty boy can act), the other
coming to mind being Magnolia. Brad Pitt isn't as great, but holds his
own and it's a quiet, somber Brad Pitt, which is a good change to the
normally twitchy, over-the- top characters he portrays (fight club, 12
monkeys, ocean's 11....even se7en to a certain extent). and of
course.....kirsten dunst....who's best role in her career is this film.
I haven't read the book, so i am writing purely on the film. Apparent
by the other reviews here, there are people who really like this movie.
It's a shame that more people haven't given this movie a chance.
