I find the entertainment industry’s ongoing vampire gold rush… to be insipid, boring and ghoulish in a trivial way that’s unique to folks who haven’t experienced much real violence or loss: goth slumber party. What a pleasure it was, then, to be won over by this exquisite, lovely film, in which contemporary characters struggle to suspend their disbelief in vampire lore while Jordan’s eye for formal beauty and truthful performances suspends ours.

Again and again, as the story shifts between women, times and moods, Mr. Jordan adds a punctuating flourish — Clara and Eleanor traveling across a field at night, dwarfed by seemingly, magically, giant cabbages — that exquisitely illustrates the once-upon-a-time mood.

If Byzantium isn’t quite as effective as prior Jordan gothics such as The Company of Wolves, In Dreams, or Ondine, it’s because it’s somewhat stymied by narrative convention in a manner those films managed to evade, but it’s still empowered by the director’s disarming command of tone and confidence with actors.
