This is my favorite vampire film of all time. It continues the trope of the bisexual female vampire, but does it so stylishly and plainly that I don't find the lesbian sexuality particularly exploitative.
Bowie's character is John Blaylock. While he gets the most tragic storyline to work with, he all but disappears half way in, making room to explore the relationship between Miriam and Sarah. It takes a few conversations before two named women have a conversation that doesn't involve John. I don't think their brief exchange at the bookstore really counts.
