Critic Reviews of "Byzantium"Denver PostJuly 12, 2013
Jordan is no stranger to the yearnings of vampires. He directed Interview With the Vampire. But Byzantium is a kinder, gentler yet pretty durn bloody affair.Detroit NewsJuly 12, 2013
Go ahead, bite.Globe and MailJuly 12, 2013
A drama that feels both strenuously earnest and impossible to take seriously.Washington PostJuly 11, 2013
Byzantium has a few moves that might surprise you. They have nothing to do with blood, but everything to do with the heart.Toronto StarJuly 11, 2013
A confusing yet eye-pleasing tale that struggles to breathe new life into the well-worn mythology.San Francisco ChronicleJuly 05, 2013
Neil Jordan's sensitive and very slow exploration of vampire angst. That the film also seems intended as some kind of vampire feminist statement makes it a rare combination of mildly boring and mildly hilarious.Bangkok PostMay 10, 2016
[Clara and Eleanor] are not technically human, but it's the human relationship between them that the film is confident to show us. And Byzantium seems most comfortable, most intimate, when its two bright actresses give us just that.TheHorrorShowAugust 24, 2015
Some "vampire stuff" you've seen before, a few new ideas that work, two great performances, and a lot of skilled veterans behind the camera.MovieCrypt.comFebruary 14, 2015
evenly split between a character piece and a mystery thriller...if you're looking for an interesting and different take on vampire legend, check into the Byzantium...Film School RejectsAugust 10, 2014
Byzantium is a refreshing take on the vampire genre.Windy City TimesJune 27, 2014
Although audience fatigue regarding vampires has surely set in...this is a romantic, sensual, bloody good time of a movie for sophisticated adults.QuickflixNovember 25, 2013
As the feature jumps backwards and forwards in time, and stories within stories coalesce, a striking tapestry is woven illustrating a world where eternal beings struggle with great change. Jordan's vampiric universe is bloody, adult, and melancholy.
