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 really enjoyed this movie. The pace, music, and camera shots were incredible. The tension built with the characters was palpable. Really great movie!
this movie has like the biggest cat i've ever seen
It does visual storytelling masterfully and is an overall amazing experience. Not your typical vampire film and that makes it one of my favorites.
this isn't necessarily a horror movie or a vampire movie. to be warned -- it is more of a drama, filmed in black and white, where one of the characters happens to be a vampire. there's some excellent images and scenes. plus there are just some guys that deserve to be brutally eaten. so it's got that going for it. which is nice.
Brilliant and beautiful.
