A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Dir. Ana Lily Amirpour USA 99 min Not Rated

2014 Kino Lorber / Vice Films

Farsi with English subtitles

Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and
other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking
the towns’ most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to
blossom…blood red.
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 drawnout scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the weird surrealism of David Lynch.
