A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT : دختری در شب تنها به خانه می‌رود‎

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (Persian: دختری در شب تنها به خانه می‌رود‎) is a 2014 American film directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. Tagged as "The first Iranian vampire Western", it was chosen to show in the "Next" program at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The film is described as being set in "the Iranian ghost town Bad City" and depicts the doings of "a lonesome vampire". A. O. Scott of The New York Times praised the film’s “Jim Jarmusch-like cool” and “disarmingly innocent outlaw romanticism.”

  1. This was a fantastic, super stylish, vampire/spaghetti western film. A lot of nuance is lost in translation if you don't really understand Farsi or the Persian culture. Some very brave choices were made in some scenes especially with regard to contemporary life and how its portrayed in Iran. There were also some subtle nods to great noirish films of the past. The film manages to embrace complexity and tension in its approach to horror without the artifice of CGI and too many gorey effects. Really loved it.
