A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT
Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut feature, promoted as the “the first Iranian vampire western,” is an effortlessly cool arthouse horror about a nameless, skateboarding, chador-cloaked “girl” (Sheila Vand) who prowls the deserted streets of “Bad Town” at night, feasting on badly-behaved men. Her bloodthirstiness is complicated when she develops a sweet tooth for Arash, a good-hearted and good-looking boy in search of a better life.
