“’Funny, scary, oddly sexy and deeply gorgeous… Watching A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, you get the impression that you’re witnessing something iconic and important unfold before you.” — Drew Taylor, The Playlist
“A beguiling, cryptic and often surprisingly funny look at personal desire that creeps up on you with the nimble powers of its supernatural focus. Grade: A” — Eric Kohn, Indiewire
“’Middle Eastern feminist vampire romance’ is likely to remain an underpopulated cinematic sub genre, but at least it now has a luminous standard-bearer in A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.” — Guy Lodge, Variety
The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, 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, the film’s airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic combines the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the weird surrealism of David Lynch.
