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
Very fine. Will watch again.
Slow, but a damn nice looking film.
A slow film, but a really stylish one. This is a prime example of “less is more”. Easily adding this to my favorites list.
not really a horror movie. About as scary as watching my dog throw her kong at me
I thought the movie was beautifully written. If you really like mellow noir indie movies, you should watch this one with a blanket on a rainy day.
