Ana Lily Amirpour directs Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi and Mozhan Marnò in this Iranian set vampire romance.
Had high expectations for this very well reviewed debut… and had enjoyed Amirpour’s gruesome follow up The Bad Batch. The monochrome look of it is amazing but it plays out like a very stretched out music video. There’s just not enough narrative to suspend all these gorgeous images and moments of disturbed longing. The style is wild, the substance lacking.
