Near Dark


Dir. Kathryn Bigelow (1987).
Kathryn Bigelow has made bigger movies but none better. Near Dark is a poetic horror film that draws its power from the outlaw mythology of Bonnie and Clyde and Gun Crazy (or maybe the Manson Family), and its brooding loneliness from the western landscape—home to the most successfully Americanized of the vampires.
