Get in the mood for Halloween with an Iranian feminist vampire film! Sometimes called a “vampire Western” with echoes of Jim Jarmusch and Iranian new wave, expatriate director Amirpour’s stylish black&white film was a hit at the 2014 Sundance Festival. Set in the bleak, fictional town Bad City, the story follows a young skateboarding “lonesome vampire” who befriends a vulnerable teenage boy. The story is anything but a simple vampire love story, though, as the she aims her fangs toward criminals and men who disrespect women. In Farsi with English subtitles. Running time 101 min.
“The titular black-robed beauty who drives the action of filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour’s visually striking and surprisingly moving black-and-white film is no helpless victim.” – Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
