[New – 6/5/15] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: Amirpour’s got a brilliant eye, conjuring images that are alternately creepy, beautiful and witty, just like her story, which also features homages to cinema’s past.
Candice Frederick @ Reel Talk Online
Kimberly Gadette @ doddle
Excerpt: Cleverly titled, this Girl who Walks Home Alone At Night has nothing to fear … but everyone else does.
Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
Excerpt: ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’ is a skillfully constructed Iranian vampire love story from first-time writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour.
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: Occasionally the creation comes across as a bit of an appropriation. However director Ana Lily Amirpour melds the inspirations in a way that cherishes them while creating something new.
Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
Excerpt: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a once-in-a-year original film; a film which comes out of nowhere from a director on nobody’s radar that hits you square in the solar plexus. It is gorgeous, it is captivating, it is enchanting; I love this film.
Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: Unprecedented as an “Iranian vampire western,” the film is surely about mortality and gender politics, but it really feels like a melting pot of visual poetry that envelops and washes over the viewer like a victim succumbing to a bloodsucker’s seduction.
Daniel Lackey @ The Nightmare Gallery
Excerpt: An engrossing, richly-realized pulp landscape, destined to be regarded as a future cult classic.
Alan Mattli @ The Zurich English Student
Excerpt: Amirpour’s debut is one that works in fits
Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
Excerpt: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’ is proof that you can still do something cool, strange, sexy, and intriguing with vampires, they’re not all ‘Twilight’ and ‘True Blood.’
Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
Excerpt: With no real plot to speak of, ‘Girl’ is a bit of a tease, although the film’s exotic originality is seductive.
