Interview With the Vampire

Interview With the Vampire

I'm not a big Anne Rice fan, except for the Vampire Chronicles. The story is about an angst-ridden vampire named Louis (Brad Pitt) who wants to tell his life story to an interviewer (Christian Slater, who took the part after the death of River Phoenix, who was first cast). The cast, sets and story are simply perfect. There was a lot of controversy about the film's star, Tom Cruise, whether or not he would make a good Lestat, Louis' teacher, or would simply ruin the film and leave out the homosexual undertones.

I think that Cruise played him to a T, as did Pitt as Louis, who seems to be the more sensitive and sensible of the two. However, the real star of the film is Kirsten Dunst as Claudia, the child vampire. She outshines her two co-stars and is everything that I envisioned in Claudia. The film has the right touch of humor and is a good period piece. I should give you a warning first. This film has a lot of blood. It doesn't bother me, but if it does bother you, don't rent it. Otherwise, it's a definite must-see.

My Rating = Four Stars
