Welcome to Bad City, Iran. It has a lot going for it: drugs, prostitution, death, etc. It also has a girl who spends her nights skating and drinking the blood of its low-lifes. Easily the best black-and-white female-driven Persian-language vampire “Western” to date, Girl demonstrates plenty of style, pop-culture savvy, and biting social commentary.
