Let Me In

Written & Directed by: Matt Reeves
Full credits at IMDb

It's not arbitrarily that Let Me In, a surprisingly delicate and usually tactful remake of a Swedish vampire neo-classic, is set in Los Alamos, the birthplace of America's largest-scale violence. Director Reeves, who made his name helming Cloverfield, pulls off the impossible: not only does he retain the sympathetic portrait of pre-pubescence-the universality-from Tomas Alfredson's sensitive Let the Right One In, but he reworks its Scandinavian themes to address our own country's recent political history. (Both films are based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist.)
