THE BAD BATCH: Very good! Although this, Ana Lily Aminpour's sophomore feature effort, has gotten more than it's fair share of negativity thrown at it. I'm not sure what people expected after A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night...that she'd make the same film? The best that we could have hoped for is that she once again would step outside of time-worn expectations of the same old same old while telling an interesting and quite different story with compelling characters. And she did.
.
The Bad Batch once again defies genre expectations and goes its own way. A decent soundtrack helps keep it moving in unanticipated directions. I enjoyed it, it's offbeat world building...by turns surreal, trippy and fun. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

A girl walks at home alone at night (2014)
Regia: Ana Lily Amirpour
Voto: 🎃🎃🎃🎃 su 5

La celebre unione tra vampiri e romanticismo sembrava ormai irrimediabilmente danneggiata, edulcorata da melensaggini adolescenziali e sbeffeggiata a ripetizione nel giro di pochi anni da film e romanzi di dubbia qualità.
Per fortuna a rivalutare un po' la bistratta effigie del padrone della notte ci pensa "A girl walks at home alone at night" diretto dalla regista Ana Lily Armipour, recitato in persiano da attori nati in Iran o originari di quei luoghi, ma prodotto con fondi americani e girato in un sobborgo di Los Angeles trasformato nella fittizia città di Bad City.
Qui tra strade deserte e una fossa comune, in cui finiscono tra l'indifferenza generale tutti i cadaveri prodotti da quel luogo fuori dal tempo, vive una vampira dalle gentili fattezze di Sheila Vand. La ragazza si aggira con tanto di chador in cerca di vittime finchè non incontra Arash, un giovane giardiniere costretto a lavorare sodo e a star dietro ad un padre tossico. Tra i due scatta qualcosa, lui strafatto, reduce da una festa in maschera e abbigliato come Dracula (trovata simpaticissima a mio parere) schiva la sete di sangue della predatrice, non prima di averci fatto dono una delle più belle scene romantiche degli ultimi anni sulle note di "Death" dei White Lies.
La musica si erge a ingrediente fondamentale, è spesso l'attore in più, quello che entrando in scena sconvolge le percezioni dello spettatore; in generale c'è un lavoro incredibile sul sonoro fino a confluire in una soundtrack di matrice rock mai banale.
La storia di Arash e della vampira senza nome scorre in parallelo con la corruzione più bieca: spacciatori, prostitute, drogati e ragazze viziate, sono tutti personaggi di una cornice splendidamente definita dalla regia elegante della Amirpour, eccezionale nel limitare i movimenti della sua mdp e nel far risaltare ambienti e volti attraverso un bianco e nero molto incisivo.
Pur non essendo un horror nel senso restrittivo del termine non manca di scene inquietanti.

➡️ This is my second viewing of this movie, and still I have the same opinion that it’s one cool vampire movie. Amirpour’s glamorous and sophisticated black and white photography combined with interesting stylistic choices and splendid soundtrack create the universe where the “girl” preys on men who exploit or are mean to women.
◽️
The movie was shot in the desert in California but it serves as the background for the fictional area referred to, in the story, as “Bad City”. The cast is made up of Iranian expats living in the US. The crisp, well-defined B&W cinematography and the architectural elements give the film an atmosphere of coolness influenced by American culture.
◽️
Despite the obvious influences and references to Americana components and icons, Amirpour transcends the simple imitation and manages to create her own vision onto the screen and give the film her own signature. The influences and references are obvious, but you are taken away into the story with such precision that you can’t help but appreciate the aesthetics.
◽️
The soundtrack in this film is an important aspect that can almost be seen as a character in itself. Certain scenes are entirely developed around the music being played, which gives an organic feel to the different parts that are put together when making a film. Thematically speaking, there is a conscious choice to create the theme from the perspective of a woman who takes charge and punish the men who exploit or mistreat women, but in no way this decision gets in the way of exploring the erotic nuances of the blood-thirsty creature we are all so fond of.
◽️
🎥 This is certainly a beautiful film to watch and enjoy. It’s also an interesting take on the ever-present vampire theme.

Look out for a more in-depth discussion during the "Vampire Week" that I'll be running in the first week of October but I just wanted to do a quick post on "A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night" since it was our focus film for Film Studies class this week. I saw this in the cinema when it first came out and at the time I thought it was just ok but upon revisiting it my appreciation for this film has just soared! It's such a stylish genre mashup with some really striking imagery and an absolutely killer soundtrack! It is a feminist film at its core but I do feel as though much of its themes/politics are a little bit swamped by its aesthetic. I was pleasantly surprised that the students were really engaged with this one and we had some great discussions, especially in the vein of the re-purposing of the chador as a vampire cape. I chose this picture because this bedroom is probably my favourite thing about the film!! I also find the relationship between vampires and vinyl an interesting one! More on this film soon! #agirlwalkshomealoneatnight #vampirefilm #vampire #iranianvampire #femalevampire #cinephile #cinephilecommunity #cinema #film #artcinema #feministfilm #hipstervampire #horror
