Let the Right One In

Just wanted to recommend this Swedish tween vampire flick. If that sounds like something you would hate, look again. It’s a fascinating film, beautifully made and acted, by no means trendy or facile. It’s always impressive when a film tries to let the characters’ gazes speak instead of dialogue, especially when it works. This ranks up there with my favourite vampire films (including Habit, another amazing and often overlooked one). It’s amazing how so many different sorts of stories can be told through the vampire myth.
