Two clips have dropped for Ana Lily Amipour's sophomore feature, The Bad Batch. And as if they weren't enough to fill me with utter excitement to see this film, Anarchist Thomas Humphrey just dropped his glowing review of the film, calling it "a candidate for best film at both the Venice and Toronot Film Festivals". High paise indeed.
And if you needed any more proof of the film's merits, Netflix quickly and aggressively acquired the exclusive SVOD rights following the film's premiere.
Described as "a dystopian love story set in a community of cannibals," The Bad Batch stars Suki Waterhouse as one of thousands of Americans deemed unacceptable to civilized society. While wandering in the wasteland, she is captured by a community of cannibals.
Like Amipour's last film, the highly acclaimed A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The Bad Batch looks to twist genre into a low-key affair that is both socially provocative and viscerally shocking.
Besides Waterhouse, the film stars a surprising cast in Jason Momoa, Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, Yolonda Ross and many others.
