A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

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

Some beautiful and memorable scenes. A bit slow in some parts where it didn’t need to be. A clever if not somewhat borrowed bloodsucking tale of ideas that are renewed in an urban scape of struggle, dependence, and loneliness.
