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 was pleased when I finally got to see this. This one is worth a watch.
Great Vampire movie, made me a fan of Sheila Vand
Love this film
subtle and nuanced but makes a statement at the same time. aesthetically pleasing, amazing black and white cinematography, beautifully captures emotion. there are sentimental/romantic undertones that I was not expecting, but it helped develop the plot instead of feeling forced and contrived. not to mention the soundtrack is great and adds a nice layer. I would watch this again!
I enjoyed it. A different kind of vampire flick.
