The final episode of Movies Steve Bannon Would Hate is here: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night: Ana Lily Amirpour's punk vampire movie about a young Iranian woman in Bad City who calls down vampire justice on the bad men
In the episode, Chris and Courtney explore all the epic glory of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, including the simple, stunning images of the Girl that mark the unique familiarity of Amirpour's movie. There's just something about the visual power of Amirpour's film and hero that make it a magical experience.
This week, we're asking listeners to consider donating to the Council on American-Islamic Relations. CAIR is doing some of the most important work in the US to protect and promote Muslim Americans, and promote mutual understanding around issues of Islam and civil liberties, and religious freedom.
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night brings together many of the themes that have surfaced in the Steve Bannon episodes--women's relationship to men, religious difference, vampirism-- and makes a fine finale to this film-watching experiment. We hope you've enjoyed listening to the Bannon Series as much as we have had making it. And we'll see you on season 2.
