Ranjan Reccomends an American-Iranian film for the week!

What seems like a desolate industrial town serves as the setting for this atmospheric film peopled with drug addicts, drug dealers, prostitutes – and a young female vampire in hijab executing vigilante justice on corrupt individuals. Debutant Ana Lily Amirpour, an American of Iranian descent works up a strange world that is soaked in cinematic influences ranging from horror, spaghetti western, noir, and grunge to graphic novels. Shot in high contrast black and white, the incidents are supposed to be taking place in a fictional Iranian city appropriately called Bad City, but shot somewhere in California.

Soak up this unique cinematic experience on MUBI.

Ranjan Das is a Mumbai based filmmaker & faculty.
