    Zürich Film Festival: film #9 

    Oh I just completely fell in love with this, and it feels so damn good. A neon soaked, completely off the rails fairytale set in new orleans accompanied by an electronic and bumping score that you can just FEEL throughout your entire body. You’d think this could come off as completely absurd, and it kind of is (in the best possible way), but the way Ana Lily Amirpour films this thing is just so goddamn…

    "this is every guy’s worst nightmare to be accused of something like that"
    "can you guess what every woman’s worst nightmare is?" 

    There is absolutely no chance in hell I can write something coherent about this right now, I feel like I’ve just been violently shaken for 2 hours. All I’m gonna say is, this is fucking ASTOUNDING. undeniably stomach-turning, heartbreaking, audacious and in-your-face but most of all ASTOUNDING. I know it’s easy to say this but nothing can prepare…
