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
