Product Description

Product Description

INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE:(MOVIE)

Amazon.ca

When it was announced that Tom Cruise would play the vampire Lestat in this adaptation of Anne Rice's bestselling novel, even Rice chimed in with a highly publicized objection. The author wisely and justifiably recanted her negative opinion when she saw Cruise's excellent performance, which perceptively addresses the pain and chronic melancholy that plagues anyone cursed with immortal bloodlust. Brad Pitt and Kirsten Dunst are equally good at maintaining the dark and brooding tone of Rice's novel. And in this rare mainstream project for a major studio, director Neil Jordan compensates for a lumbering plot by honoring the literate, Romantic qualities of Rice's screenplay. Considered a disappointment while being embraced by Rice's loyal followers, the movie is too slow to be a satisfying thriller, but it is definitely one of the most lavish, intelligent horror films ever made. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of the VERY FEW Vampire films that isn't ridiculous. I do like Werner Herzog's NOSGERATU, in spite of the fangs, etc, and Tony Scott's THE HUNGER has vampires that don't look silly, and a stylish look about it. But INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE IS SPECIAL. As well as looking convincing, they give one a real sense of ehat it's like to live in their strange night-world. Neil Jordan has done an excellent job.

this movie was absolutely wonderful. presently my best friend and I are in the middle of reading the book, and still love both equally, but we've noticed all the differences too. if you don't want to know what happens in the book, don't read this book, only know that both are wonderful. In the book, Louis has no wife and child, he is instead mourning the death of his younger brother, who he believes he murdered. He becomes a cold shell of a man...etc. then the movie continues correctly. Louis, as a vampire, falls in love with Babette Franiere, a mortal who runs a plantation not 5 miles from Point Du Lac, Louis's old plantation. he helps her, gives her advice from the shadows. she learns of his true form, and calls him the devil and shuns him from her home. the movie continues. Louis and Claudia leave for Europe, they find that Lestat has sired (to turn a human to a vampire) another. The movie continues, but Louis and Claudia search all of Europe for vampires, but mostly all that they find are mindless killing machines. they finally reach paris, where they find: Theatre des Vampires- a play of vampires posing as humans playing vampires. other than these few differences, the movie is almost exactly like the book. but even with these differences, both are by far some of the best vampire lore/stories i've read/seen ever.

When I bought this DVD, I had already read some of Anne Rice's work and hoped that the film would do the book justice. It definately did.
I won't describe the plot to you, you have probably already discovered the main drill from other reviews. But to sum it all up, the story is about a 200-year old vampire named Louis (played excellently by Brad Pitt), who is lured into the immortality of the damned by a supremely evil and charismatic vampire named Lestat (stylishly played by Tom Cruise), then tormented by an unalterable fact of vampire life: to survive, he must kill.
Tom Cruise steals the show. He made a perfect Lestat. Brad Pitt also pulls off the "whiny" Louis brilliantly, and Kirsten Dunst shows her great talent in such an early stage of her acting career as Claudia, the child vampire who longs to grow up.
Overall, I give this film 100%. I have never seen a more intriguing, sensual or spellbinding vampire film like this one.

Format: Blu-ray
"Libera me, Domine, de vitae aeterna" - "Free me, Lord, from eternal life": If a movie begins with a choir and boy soprano singing these words, in a requiem's style and overlaying the camera's sweeping move over nightly San Francisco bay, zooming in on a Victorian building's top-floor window after having followed the life on the street below like a hunter follows its prey - if a movie begins like this, you know you're not looking at your average flick, whatever its subject. (And if the first thing you catch is the Latin phrase's grammatical mistake, this is probably not your kind of movie to begin with).

Much-discussed even before its release, due not least to Anne Rice's temporary withdrawal of support and her no less sensational subsequent 180-degree turn, Neil Jordan's adaptation of the "Vampire Chronicles"' first part, based on Rice's own screenplay, is a sumptuous production awash in luminous colors, magnificent period decor and costumes, rich fabrics, heavy crystal, elegant silverware and gallons of deeply scarlet blood, supremely photographed by Phillippe Rousselot, with a constant undercurrent of sensuality and seduction; an audiovisual orgy substantiated by one of recent film history's most ingenious scores (by Elliot Goldenthal). Although the book only gained notoriety after the publication of its sequel "The Vampire Lestat," followed in short order by the "Chronicles"' third installment, "The Queen of the Damned," by the time this movie was produced, Rice had acquired a large and loyal fan base, who would have been ready to tear it to shreds had it failed to meet their expectations. That this was not unanimously the case is in and of itself testimony to Neil Jordan's considerable achievement (only underscored by the botched 2002 realization of "Queen of the Damned").

I liked this movie rather well when I was younger, but after watching it again recently, I found it almost intolerable. I don't know why I ever thought Tom Cruise as a pompous, nihilistic vampire was worth watching, because he's not. He's just TOO Tom Cruise to stand, and all the makeup and poncy clothing in the world can't change his mannerisms and facial expressions.
This movie takes itself much too seriously, and all the manufactured angst and darkness reminds one of the public access Floridian goths on SNL.
Honestly, Brad Pitt's acting was pretty okay, but any redemption to be found in his performance (as far as the film goes, overall) is eclipsed by the wretchedness of the rest of the production.
I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone, save teenagers who perhaps are still impressed by this kind of thing.
