Scenes from Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Much has been written about Ana Lily Amirpour‘s super-stylish and self-styled ‘the first Iranian vampire western’ film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.

I loved how the film wore its multiple influences as a badge of honour, including film noire which I hope I captured in the frame grab sets of favourite scenes I made below (captions underneath).

  1. I like what you’ve written here. The screen grabs are well chosen and the captions are great. You make me want to see the film. Interesting idea to not have Dracula as the vampire. Do you have a sense of how the film was received in Iran? Is it a country with strong lengthy a history of horror within it’s film industry? Thanks. BAB

  2. Thanks for your comments. The film’s publicity is potentially misleading in this regard as it’s an American but Persian language film made by an Iranian-American, but situationally it’s Iranian. Dracula is a young, smitten, man dressed up as Dracula—he doesn’t quite know what he’s gotten himself in for!
