A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
Creative people have been doing some really amazing things in the medium of vampires in recent years. Movies like Let the Right One In, Only Lovers Left Alive and 30 Days of Night take a few of the centuries-old ideas of vampire fiction and recontextualize them into something that speaks to modern audiences. Heck, you could even make that argument for Twilight. But A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night lays claim to some of the more under-represented features of vampirism: independence and loneliness.
Set in an imaginary town in Iran, A Girl tells the story of a man and his drug-addicted father as they become entangled in an underworld of crime and debauchery, and meet with a strange, magnetic young girl with a secret. It sets out to be a movie about blood (meaning familial relationships) and blood (meaning the pervasive power of violence); it so happens that there are many creatures in this world that feed on blood of all sorts.
