A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
The motley denizens of Bad City, a fictional Iranian town, are watched by a mysterious and mostly silent figure with her own private agenda.
I wanted to love this noirish, sometimes surreal film with touches of black humor. The soundtrack and cinematography are excellent, and the glimpse at a different culture provides a fresh slant, but overall the film moves too slowly for true excellence. I would definitely recommend it, and can easily imagine rewatching it, so check it out (streaming Netflix) if you are in the mood for something highly atmospheric and beautifully made but slower paced. Totally biddy friendly.
