A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
Directed by: Ana Lily Amirpour
Cinematography: Lyle Vincent
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a visually attractive movie. It was released in black and white, and judging by the shots it seems like that stylistic choice was a pillar dictating the look and composition of many of the shots.
Because of the black and white, a big focus is put on the creation of strong contrast between elements; this is obviously extremely apparent in the outdoor scenes where the sky acts as a white canvas, but it is also strongly emphasized by the clever use of lights in the dark scenes.
The movie features a fairly high number of close-up shots which underline the vivid and powerful facial expressions of the main characters.
