Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as 500-year-old vampires in Only Lovers Left Alive. The song is Trapped By A Thing Called Love by Denise Lasalle. When we saw the movie we were struck by the perfection of their hair. Of course vampires would have those masses of hair, hair continues growing after death.
