Beguilingly cryptic and supernatural yet intrinsically personal and human, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a triumph.
Each shot tops the last, defined by Lyle Vincent’s bewitching cinematography which accomplishes incessant beauty, while the Bad City they create is illuminated by Sheila Vand’s mesmeric lead. Unapologetic and undeterred, Vand is intoxicating and magnetic using little more than silence and stares.
Amirpour’s film incorporates echoes from teen romances, social commentaries, sultry noirs, and horror stories yet never depends or duplicates. The writer/director’s feature debut transcends sub-genres and expectations to deliver an exceptional idiosyncratic masterpiece.
