Film notes:

A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT • US • 2014
101′ | Drama • Horror

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a Persian-language American vampire western film directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. Tagged as “The first Iranian vampire Western”, it was chosen to show in the “Next” program at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The film is described as being set in “the Iranian ghost-town Bad City” and depicts the doings of “a lonesome vampire”.

The film received positive reviews from critics, holding a 96% “Certified Fresh” approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 116 reviews.

Guy Lodge of Variety said in his review that “Ana Lily Amirpour’s auspicious debut feature is a sly, slinky vampire romance set in an imaginary Iranian underworld”. Andrew O’Hehir of Salon called the film “the year’s biggest discovery” and praised its feminist themes. Boyd van Hoeij, in his review for The Hollywood Reporter, praised the movie, saying “this moody and gorgeous film is finally more about atmosphere and emotions than narrative – and none the worse for it”. Drew Taylor of Indiewire graded the film A− and said that it gives “the impression that you’re witnessing something iconic and important unfold before you”. [Wikipedia]
