Do I recommend The Addiction? Yes, but with trepidation. Or at least with qualifications. If ever there were a movie where you'd say it's not for everyone, this is it.
It's a vampire movie centered on a philosophy grad student (Lili Taylor, demonstrating why she should have been huge and probably never will be.) So a certain amount of making subtext text is to be expected. Your mileage may vary on it.
It's got a very interesting look. Shot entirely in black and white, it's also in a narrower aspect ratio than most movies made after the fifties. But it doesn't look like an old Universal or Val Lewton horror movie. The camera takes everything in with the detachment of a Warhol screen test.
An unusual casting tidbit: The guru vampire Peina was written as a woman, but when Christopher Walken read the script he fixated on that role and Abel Ferrara agreed to cast him. Balancing the gender switch, Annabella Sciorra wound up playing the part Walken was supposed to get. She makes an impression, and not just with her teeth.
