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 town's most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red. Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mashup of genre archetypes 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, it's airy, anamorphic, black and white aesthetic and artfully drawn out scenes combine with simmering tension to make the first Iranian Vampire Western.
