Ana Lily Amirpour’s feature directorial debut is the best foreign-language vampire movie since Tomas Alfredson’s 2008 Swedish film, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. Both are foreign films (A GIRL is Iranian) and have female vampires, but that is where the comparisons stop. A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is stylized, musically 80s, and downright sexy in its black and white images. Even the film’s press notes reaffirms its cool indie vibe by refering to Arash Marandi’s character as the “The Persian James Dean”. But what is most impressive is Ms. Amirpour’s directorial decisions that reveal a seasoned director—not a first timer—that knows what she wants and knows how to get it on screen.
