Film Review Nadja



Hal Hartley meets David Lynch in this stylish vampire film. The film is from the mid 90s and shot in black & white. Saw this in the cinema when it first came out and was one of the first films that got me into the art house/indie films over the blockbuster types. The sound track is notable for having Portishead, My Bloody Valentine and more which gives it that creepy yet dream like feel. Peter Fonda and Martin Donovan star in the film. Nadja is such an overlooked vampire film and should be watched for style not for action. It's in the vain of The Hunger starring David Bowie for vampire flicks in an Art House sense. A very wintery film. I just wrote wintery.
