A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

22 May 20156 Aug 2015

Iranian writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut feature is an atmospheric vampire story filmed in stunning monochrome and full of allegorical references. In run-down Bad City, the Girl in question is actually a hijab-cloaked bloodsucker.

During her nocturnal ramblings on her skateboard, she bumps into a hooker and feasts on a drug dealer and a pimp. She meets Arash, a handsome James Dean lookalike who’s on his way home from a party dressed as Dracula. He dreams of leaving Bad City, but has to support his junkie father. Visual jokes abound, and the slow-burn romance between Arash and the Girl is beautifully modulated in this wonderfully strange film.
