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
hmm; i think i liked this. the feel you get from the film being black & white with the secular camera angles & having hardly any dialog is really interesting. i don't think i'd watch this again, but i'm glad i watched it once.
one of my favorites now holy moly this was amazing
this movie is beautiful. cant really say much else. nigh perfect
I liked it, interesting contrasts in values and social norms. Music was cool, good mix of east and west.
