    It seems like Neil Jordan's the only director in the world who has somehow managed to make TWO great vampire films. Mesmerizing, couldn't take my eyes off the screen. 5 years 11 months ago

    I found it rather refreshing. With this and Kiss of the Damned, it's been a good year for serious vampire films. 5 years 11 months ago

    A partial return to form for Neil Jordan after the shipwreck of "Ondine" ," Byzantium" has sumptuous visuals and provides an original take on the vampire myth and its origins. While the mystery is continuously engaging and it unravels with narrative aplomb in two time frames, the characters, with the exception of that of Saoirse Ronan, fail to be particularly distinctive and appear sometimes to act simply in order to advance the plot. Nevertheless, the undercurrent feminist parable of centuries of sexploitation is interesting and original while Jordan's visual talent is evident in some scenes making the film certainly worth seeing. 5 years 9 months ago
