News: "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" on VOD and iTunes now!

Biggest news for my movie buff friends! 

One of my top 10 favorite films of 2014 is now available on VOD and iTunes!!!

Here's a sampling of more raves from top critics!

"The biggest honest-to-God discovery of 2014." 
– Andrew O'Hehir,

"... a new vampire classic, one to treasure endlessly."
– Drew Taylor, The Playlist (Indiewire)

"Even as Ms. Amirpour draws heavily from various bodies of work with vampire-like hunger, she gives her influences new life by channeling them through other cultural forms, including her chador-cloaked vampire..."
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"Just when you think you've seen it all...along comes something completely new, or at least something so intriguingly bizarre as to seem completely new." 
– Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal

"This is a dream on your screen, absurd, languid (if not slow), and possessed by the calm of an inevitable beauty. This is what cinema was invented for." 
– David Thomson, The New Republic

Kino Lorber is proud to announce the highly anticipated VOD release of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night on several VOD platforms, including iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, and Amazon Instant. The film is being released in collaboration with Vice Films.

After grossing over $420,000 in US theaters and playing in more than 75 markets, Ana Lily Amirpour's feature debut is now available nationwide, a month before its Blu-ray and DVD release. (The film is still playing strong at IFC Center, four months after its New York premiere on November 21, 2014.)

On iTunes, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night comes with additional special features, including a Q&A Hosted by Roger Corman at the Hammer Museum, and a VICE interview with Ana Lily Amirpour and Sheila Vand.

The "moody and gorgeous" (The Hollywood Reporter) film made its world premiere at last year's Sundance Film Festival, and was the opening night event at the prestigious New Directors/ New Films, programmed by MoMA and the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The film went on to gather outstanding reviews and its writer/director, Ana Lily Amirpour, won the Gotham Award for Breakthrough Director.

Dubbed the world's first "Iranian Vampire Western," A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a joyful mash-up of genre and prolific influences spanning spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. While comparisons have been made to Jarmusch, Lynch, Tarantino, and Sergio Leone, the film is wholly original and refreshingly daring, signaling the arrival of a bold new voice with writer/director Amirpour.

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night also features an impressive cast of actors including leads Sheila Vand (Argo), Arash Marandi (Kunduz: The Incident at Hadji Ghafur) and Dominic Rains (The Taqwacores), as well as Mozhan MarnĂ³ (House of Cards, The Stoning of Soraya M), Rome Shadanloo, Marshall Manesh and Milad Eghbali.

The film is rounded out by the sumptuous, black-and-white anamorphic cinematography of Lyle Vincent and a soundtrack that features the Middle Eastern fusion beats of Bei Ru, the underground Iranian rock of Radio Tehran and Kiosk, and the spaghetti western-inspired tunes of Portland-based Federale.
