A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

agirlwalkshomeWatched A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. You’ll often hear it billed as an “Iranian”movie,  but it’s not really. Amirpour is an Iranian-American, which is not the same thing. The movie is in Farsi, and the setting does look like it could be Iran, but it’s really California.

It’s a good movie. A good vampire movie. Not much of a plot, and in places doesn’t make a lot of sense. It does have a really great sense of poetic style, really reminiscence of the early Jarmusch films, but without the humor. Amirpour says she’s not a Jarmusch fan, which is very odd. Her  movie suggests she is.
