Interview with the Vampire
1994
**½
Director: Neil Jordan
Cast: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas, Stephen Rea

In modern day San Francisco Louis talks to a reporter and describes his life as a vampire, which started in 1791 when he met Lestat. This visually dazzling vampire film examines the curse of eternal life, but its interesting themes are buried under pompous and corny dialogue. The sequel-proof ending also leaves a bad taste. However, Kirsten Dunst gives a stunning breakthrough performance as the young Claudia. Based on first part of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles.
