I hate the title of Let the Right One In.
In Let the Right One In reviewed, Tim Lucas explains that the title is taken from a Morrissey song. That only makes me like it less. Yes, I understand how the lyrics, as quoted, resonate with the material, so I see why John Ajvide Lindqvist, the author of Let the Right One In, the novel upon which this movie is based, used it. In fact, it probably has a more novelistic quality.
But I know I got an email asking if I wanted to see it, and despite the fact that I had heard good things and did want to see it, my first reaction reading the title was, "No! Have you met me?" Then I placed it and, of course, did want to go... and did go. And thankfully, because I love the movie itself.
I love it in that way that makes it hard to write about, especially since so much of what is so wonderful is so purely cinematic. It's a moody and beautiful, creepy and fascinating. It's frankly one of the best new movies I've seen in a long while. I'll leave it at that.
