A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT IN UK CINEMAS 22nd MAY
If ever there was an unlikely darling of the festival circuit, it would be Ana Lily Amirpour's Iranian vampire western, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. This monochromatic genre mash-up has been wowing audiences and critics alike and puts itself in front of UK audiences this Friday 22nd May courtesy of Studiocanal. Check out the trailer and stills below and get those tickets booked. This is not your usual multiplex-filler.
Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkie, pimps and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns most unsavoury inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red.
The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature 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, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn-out scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the weird surrealism of David Lynch.
