A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night – My Review

Full blown, over-the-top, Iranian spaghetti vampirism, in noirish black and white no less. Yes, please. With a distinctively Persian style, the director shot an Iranian film right here in California.

This one stands out as unique, hyper-real, and completely independent. Bonus: you can check out director Ana Lily Amirpour’s talk with shlockmeister Roger Corman.

With a fictional Iran as backdrop the film feels even more dangerous and foreboding. Everyone on screen engages in impermissible activities. The characters’ tastes run intercontinental, like the director. Music, dress, and décor reach out, but the personalities remain grounded in Iranian culture. This makes for a very odd experience.

Girl-Walks (1)

Highly skilled camera work and creative imagery throughout. I believe it was anamorphic widescreen. This is a film I wish I saw in the theater.

It’s always time for a decent vampire tale.
