Only Lovers Left Alive: Einstein's Theory of Entanglement is spooky

Adam and Eve awake in separate parts of the world:  he, in Detroit, lute on lap, and she, in Tangier, on her bed surrounded by books.  for lovers who cannot live without each other, it's hard to understand why they cannot be in the same place.

Christopher Marlowe refuses to be addressed in public, especially since he wrote most of Shakespeare's masterpieces.   he refers to Adam as a suicidally romantic scoundrel whom he laments not having met before he wrote Hamlet.  Adam had been a major influence to countless writers, musicians and scientists.

Adam, unlike Lestat, prefers seclusion over fame.  while both use music as a means of expression, Adam would rather live in the shadows, while mastering his craft.   having acquired substantial scientific knowledge over the years, the vampire has managed to build contraptions to power both his home and vintage sports car with technology originally pioneered by Nikola Tesla.  which would make sense because if i were a reclusive vampire and i don't really want to see anyone, the idea of going out for gas or paying my Meralco bill would irritate the hell out of me.  but he is despondent, and even if Eve were on the other side of the planet, she can feel his pain and she goes to him.  they drive around, they talk, they walk together, they dance.

i have never seen a couple so good together on screen.  i have always been fascinated with vampires and if i were to walk the around for all eternity, i would want to have my soulmate walk the earth with me.  that is what they are together.

"When you separate an entwined particle, and move both parts away from the other, even at opposite ends of the universe, if you alter or affect one, the other will be identically altered or affected. spooky."
