A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

(2014)

Persian-language vampire romance, the feature debut from American rising indie auteur Ana Lily Amirpour.

  • A sly, slinky creeper... feature spices its genre stew with elements of Lynchian neo-noir and even spaghetti Western, but the film’s pointed, contemporary gender politics are very much its own. Full Review

  • This moody and gorgeous film is finally more about atmosphere and emotions than narrative -- and none the worse for it. Full Review

  • Like a mosaic of shimmering fragments that do not compose a bigger picture, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature brims with stylised qualities that have been prioritised over story and characters. Full Review

  • This film is just occasionally a bit too cool for school - but mostly just cool enough, which is very cool. Full Review

  • By turns funny, vaguely creepy and too cool for school, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is certainly unusual - but also seductive and strange enough to stick in the memory like a fever dream. Full Review

  • Equally cool and cruel, stuffed with subtext, this 'Iranian fairytale' weaves its spell to a flip, hip ending. Amirpour is one to watch. Full Review
