A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) Official Trailer

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Variety:



A sly, slinky creeper set in an imaginary Iranian underworld — appropriately realized in glistening black and white — U.S.-based writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s auspicious debut feature spices its genre stew with elements of Lynchian neo-noir and even spaghetti Western, but the film’s pointed, contemporary gender politics are very much its own. Even allowing for the recent cultural ubiquity of fang fiction, “Girl” is too arch and deliberate to cross over in the manner of “Let the Right One In,” but will continue to draw blood on the festival circuit.


Film Comment: Interview: Ana Lily Amirpour


The cat in this film is an exceptional actor. I remember you talking about it at your Q&A at Sundance.

The cat is a gangster! The gangster star in the movie. I was so worried that this was going to be the hardest part. It was Sina’s cat, my producer. Really early on I was auditioning other cats, and he was like, why don’t you give my cat a shot? And I was like, he’s too fat, he’s not right, he’s not good-looking enough. And then I met him and he was really good, so calm, so chill—he behaves like a dog almost. And then we did some tests and I thought, OK, he’s the cat, but then he was just beyond. In some scenes he would just be like: “No, no, this is what we’re doing.” He was always awesome, always doing something special. He had great ideas. It’s so weird to say that. He’d just be like: “No coverage, no cutting, one shot, let’s just do it like this.”


Film Maker Magazine:



Anna-lily-amirpour-306x460Born in England, Amirpour moved with her family to Miami when she was young. “I watched the making of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ video thousands of times,” she says. “It taught me how to be an American.” The family settled in Bakersfield, where Amirpour made shorts, like a slumber party slasher pic, on her dad’s Sony Sport Hi-8 camera. She went to college as a biology major but dropped out, snowboarding for a summer before going to art school in San Francisco and film school at University of California-Los Angeles. She signed early with Hollywood agents and managers, but it was while in Germany, making a short for the Berlinale Talent Campus, that she decided to stop playing the studio game. “I ended not making those [Hollywood] films, and I am so glad. They were not my pure soul matter. In Germany, I got to sit and think about the shit that I love. I thought, I’m going to write something where everything people say and do turns me on.” In less than a year she was through production. “I feel like you have to get your own ball rolling, fast and hard, until it’s this undeniable giant boulder rolling down the hill,” she says.

Alexander Wang On Finding Anna Ewers

Alexander Wang & Anna Ewers for V Magazine

V Magazine:



"I think I found her picture on a blog. Then I sent it to Anita [Bitton], who we work with on casting, and I said, “Let’s find this girl!” Immediately I sort of fell in love with her, and the rest is history."

...

"There’s no one that photographs personalities better than Steven Klein, in my opinion. Anna was, of course, a model that was just entering her career, but I wanted to portray her in a very big, grand way, and to have her feel very iconic. There’s a mystery about her, and for anyone who hasn’t seen her face before, it’s an image of her unveiling herself…kind of a debut."

Anna Wintour On Vogue US' Leniency On Taste

B2f_TB3q_IEAAN1_Xf

Stylelist:


On that Kontroversial Kimye Kover [Anna Wintour]:
"I see the role of Vogue to reflect what's going on in the culture. The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. It's such a long time ago probably no one remembers, but she was a very controversial figure. Now she's part of the establishment. I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It's very important that people do talk about us. Going back to Estée Lauder's decision to make Kendall Jenner the face of Estée Lauder. What a fantastic decision that was! They have a wonderful brand that's very traditionally American, and they decided they want to shake it up and reach a different audience. Now and again one has to do things like that. I think it's part of the excitement and part of being a journalist. I hope another Kim Kardashian comes along this year!"


So many disses in this quote.
