A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE at the Gene Siskel Film Center

  • Posted : January 7th, 2015

This spookily sumptuous neo-noir shot in velvety black-and-white is the American indie discovery of the year, possibly of the decade. Iranian American director Amirpour, a former rock band diva, emerges from the shadows a full-blown cinema auteur with a cryptic vampire tale set in a dusty ghost town somewhere left of Spaghetti Western territory and frozen in a Fifties time capsule. Imaginary Bad City sits at the foot of an oil refinery and crawls with low-life losers who just happen to speak Persian. James Dean-styled hunk Arash (Marandi) has a cat for a sidekick and the hottest wheels in town until the drug dealer takes the keys. The Girl (Vand), a nocturnal specter in a long black chador, considers her options. Love bites. In Persian with English subtitles.
