Interview with the VampireDirector: Neil JordanProducers: Stephen Wooley and David GeffenScreenplay: Anne Rice based on her novelCinematography: Philippe RousselotMusic: Elliot GoldenthalU.S. Distributor: Warner BrothersHollywood is full of bizarre things, but I bet you haven't' seen big stars, and I mean BIG, running around sucking blood out of each other, with themes of pedophilia and homosexuality mingling in the background? Well, if you haven't, by all means, go rent Interview with the Vampire, it's worth wasting a bit over two hours.Brad Pitt plays Louis, a two-century old vampire who tells his life story to a fascinated interviewer (Christian Slater).
