A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour
The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Amped by a mix of Iranian rock, techno and Morricone-inspired riffs, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn-out scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the surrealism of David Lynch.
Strange things are afoot in Bad City, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns' most unsavory inhabitants.
Cast: Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Mozhan Marno, Marshall Manesh, Dominic Rains
I didn't think I would like this movie but I did. Not for everyone but worth a watch.
It's okay to look at stylishly at times, but one of the more boring horror movies I've seen. It's not even a slow burn because you never get burned. The plot goes nowhere and I was grateful when it was over, even though it had no resolution.
Amazing aesthetic. The sound in this movie is so mesmerizing.
Evocative and beautiful
slow. artsy. enjoyable. loved it.
