My first thought when witnessing the titular Girl for the first time is that she is beautiful. However as the plot progresses her beauty transitions into something a bit more frightening, and above all powerful. This is one of the simplest ways to describe Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. It serves as an eye-catching mash up of horror, spaghetti western, thriller and suspense in a way that suggests one genre then leads you down towards another. By the end we are left in the hands of the characters, who wield all the power and control of their own fates.
