A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Amirpour has written a back story for The Girl in comicbook form. Starring Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi Price £4.49 (HD to rent)
Ana Lily Amirpour’s feature debut is the best black-and-white Iranian vampire western ever made. Lest you think we’re damning the film with faint praise, it’s so good you’ll forget Twilight ever happened to vampires. Set in the fictional Middle-Eastern backwater town of Bad City, it’s about the blossoming romance between The Girl and James Dean wannabe Arash. He’s the drug-dealing coolest kid in town, she’s a centuries-old bloodsucker who stalks the streets on a skateboard while her chador billows in the wind. You know, the usual.
Shot in striking monochrome, and with a killer soundtrack, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night could only be cooler if each copy came with a free Fab lolly. It’s got atmosphere in abundance, and in The Girl crafts a stripy-topped, animé-eyed icon. The pace could generously be described as ‘sluggish’, but that’s all part of the film’s seductive rhythms. Essential viewing. Mass Effect – The Poster Collection
