It's in Farsi, it's beautifully-shot film noir, it has a female lead, and you have to see it.
A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour is, in her words, "an Iranian vampire western. It's shot in black and white, it's set in a fictitious town, it's about how hard it is to kill people and drink their blood." The film receives high marks on Rotten Tomatoes for it's beauty and originality; though if you're skeptical, the user reviews on Metacritic critique it's pacing and other blemishes, though they are generally quite positive.
What is her statement? In this interview, she not only describes the film as deeply personal, she also says with some frustration, "being Iranian, you can't pass gas without it being political." Her story is about love and loneliness, and it's clear her intention is to make a good, entertaining flick, which she has nailed.
Amirpour has also released a prequel graphic novel. which IGN describes as, "a comic that reads like Sin City mixed with Batman and a dose of the supernatural."
