Before you see 'Only Lovers Left Alive' here are five Jarmusch movies online

Recently Jim Jarmusch's vampire film, "Only Lovers Left Alive," was released in the U.S. The film stars Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as vampires, which if you ask me is a brilliant idea! At the moment the film on Rotten Tomatoes has a 87%. Anyway if you have either the streaming sites, Hulu Plus or Netflix, then take sometime out of your week to watch these five Jarmusch movies.

Netflix:

"The Limits of Control" (2009)

This 2009 flick takes a minmialist and weird look at a stranger, who travels to Madrid on a unsavory mission. Isaach De Bankole, Alex Descas, Tilda Swinton, and Jean-Francois Stevenin starred in this indie thriller.

"Broken Flowers" (2005)

Bill Murray starred in this Jarmusch film where Murray (who plays basically an aging 'Don Juan') learns that he has a teenage son. Tilda Swinton, Jeffrey Wright, Jessica Tandy, and Sharon Stone also starred in "Broken Flowers."

Hulu Plus:

"Permanent Vacation" (1980)

"Permanent Vacation" was Jarmusch's first movie, which Chris Parker played the main character. Basically a film about a young man that roams around pondering his life in New York. Really everyone should see his first flick.

"Stranger Than Paradise" (1984)

John Lurie, Eszter Balint, and Richard Edson starred in this deadpan comedy. The tale is about two friends, and one of the friend's cousin that is visiting from Hungary.

"Night on Earth" (1991)

This early 90s Jarmusch movie is five vignettes that take place in five different cities, and five different cabs. Gena Rowlands, Winona Ryder, Roberto Benigni, and Rosie Perez all starred in "Night on Earth."

So before you see "Only Lovers Left Alive" or after you see it, check (or recheck) some of Jarmusch's movies online, either it be on Hulu Plus or Netflix!
