    A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is one of the coolest movies of the year. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, the film stars Sheila Vand as a chador-wearing vampire preying on the men of Bad City in a mash-up of western and vampire film, which is also surprisingly funny and romantic. Vand and Amirpour were in New York this week for the release of the film, and talked about their mysterious character, dangerous love, and the benefits of working with a cat on set.

The movie is one of the most interesting movies of the year, which features a star0making performance by Sheila Vand and a stunning feature film debut by writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour.

He says that with Dandy, they're just “freaks to be gawked at”; Bette astutely points out that that's not at all different from life at the freak show.
