    Shot in gorgeously expressionistic black-and-white and fusing multiple genres into a thoroughly original whole, Amirpour has crafted a beguiling, cryptic and often surprisingly funny look at personal desire that creeps up on you with the nimble powers of its supernatural focus.

    It's a new vampire classic, one to treasure endlessly.

    It is the way in which the writer-director uses the specter of vampires and vices to take an off-center cut at Iranian gender politics and U.S.-Eurocentric pop culture that sets the film apart.

    It etches a sweet, sad and solemnly fatalistic love story between feeding times.

    In the end, this morphing of ideas and styles is more deadpan romantic than sociocritical, and sweeter for it.

    To dismiss it as simply an act of hipster appropriation is to cop out, because appropriation is the film's thematic meat.

    For much of the movie, nothing happens, and it’s not the rigorous, locked-in nothing of the long-take art film, but the slow-motion, music-montage nothing of the artsy American indie.
