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
Just sit in the lovely shots and simmer
Gorgeous and suspenseful.
an amazing film noir romance, my personal favorite movie!
Gorgeous. Slow-burn. Iranian. Noir. My new heroine wears a black chador and walks the night-time streets of Bad City sinking her teeth into those who deserve to die.
good shots and writing, but extremely slow and not really a horror movie. A little too, "aRtSy FaRtSy" for us.
