A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Ana Lily Amirpour's chilly vampire Western isn't particularly scary, but it will get under your skin. Upon its release, critics compared the film's combination of deadpan humor, stark cinematography, and moody music to the work of David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, and other maverick filmmakers of the '80s. But Amirpour is a singular talent, and her film is far more than a series of Wikipedia-sourced reference points. The film, like The Girl at the center of its story, is out for your blood. Just let it in.
