I didn't know what to expect from A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT. All I knew heading into it was that it was received quite well. Immediately, the movie struck me as extremely stylish and confident, even though it took me a while to fully engage with it. Once I bought in, though, I was fully on board. A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT is a remarkable film with a distinctive tone that really, really works.

The music in this movie is incredible. I had to pause it several times throughout to look up specific songs from the soundtrack and add them to a "dope tracks from movies" playlist - maybe I'll share a link to that playlist at some point and edit it as the year goes on. That could be fun. In addition to the music, the cinematography and direction were deeply affecting. There were so many visually interesting scenes throughout the movie that it's hard to pick a favorite, although the scene that stuck with me the most was the bedroom / disco ball scene:

I'd recommend A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT if you're in the mood for a unique, eccentric vampire movie set in a place called Bad City. Tomorrow: Free.
