I liked the drug dealer guy. He was the only character with verve and should have gotten much more screen time.

Has displaced Near Dark as the greatest vampire movie ever made in America.

Very true to 3am

Gorgeous cinematography and an offbeat premise--a female vampire who is both Muslim and a skateboarder; why not?--don't quite redeem the glacial pace of the movie or its abiding self-consciousness.

If Fellini had ever made a vampire movie this would have been it.

1/2 star for the cat.

Loved it! The cat was a scene stealer. A beautiful film with wit and whimsy along with the darker tones. So glad I finally watched it.

Beautiful visuals. Great use of black & white. Nice soundtrack. Sparse dialogue and very slow-paced. I enjoyed aspects, but it left something to be desired for me. 3/5

Bravo!!! One of my favorite definitely and oh so captivating. It's easy on the eyes, but just so beautiful! I secretly fell in love with Arash right away.

I see some people calling this one pretentious. I like a little pretension.

It's very easy to watch -- great lighting and atmosphere, surprisingly romantic, awesome soundtrack. The Lynchian vibe is definitely strong, so if you're into that kind of thing...

Nice movie. There are a couple of scenes that are maybe a repeated resource... just a flaw of a brilliant movie. I have to say it. I loved the cat inclusion! >"< <3

just last night while walking to my car in Ottawa a group of grown men started shouting at me and trying to get my attention, this isn't unusual at all but its still scary to have a group of people stronger than you harassing you when you're alone at night. That's why this movie resonates ...Read more

what do you mean? I thought it was about being good and bad, and I think is very optimistic. Nothing is painful in this movie. Everyone got what they deserved. Except for the kid... I would have given the kid a couple of watches before I left ;)

It wasn't what I expected at all, but I rather liked it.

A Movie Does Not Live Up To The Hype At Night. Yawner with a couple fun moments.

Brilliant on so many levels.

Fun fact: this was filmed in Bakersfield, CA. (100 miles from LA) It's a town known for being crime-ridden, and all-around dumpy. It served well for the filmmaker's setting.

Absolutely astounding. Kicking myself for taking so long to see it!

Lives up to its Vampire Western tag, in a good way.

Fascinating cat as through-line, and a metaphoric cautionary tale to men to treat women better (or else).
