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

getting sick and tired of foreign films dominating movie markets don't like reading movies...and I don't do the whole black and white screenplay for any contemporary movies...

This is a visual beautiful film with one of the best musical scores. The dream-like quality of everything makes this a must watch.

Mesmerizing, consistently engaging, with a magnetic central performance. Pair with Under the Shadow for a perfect night of Persian horror.
