Critic Reviews for A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
It's so smart, meticulous and fresh that I can only hope it marks the beginning of a provocative new franchise.
Like a mosaic of shimmering fragments that do not compose a bigger picture, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature brims with stylised qualities that have been prioritised over story and characters.
Your first guess is that Amirpour never met a Jim Jarmusch film she didn't like, but given that she's denied this in interviews, it's must be more a case of accidentally twinned stylebooks: the deadpan glaze never comes off.
Amirpour never lets a message get in the way of a good tune, taking palpable delight in spinning the reels like a cinematic DJ, keeping the crowd on their toes, wrong-footing their dance moves.
Audience Reviews for A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Artsy fartsy at its "best", nicely filmed and with some interesting choices of music, but with no plot to speak of and several scenes that just keep dragging on. Yawn.
Brilliant. I loved everything about it. So beautifully filmed.
The kind of failed artsy horror pulp Western in which even the stunning moments help make it feel all the more pretentious, silly and empty, and there is nothing more ridiculous than an Iranian feminist vampire wearing a chador - is that supposed to be ironic or just stupid?
