THE BAD BATCH
2016, Netflix, 115 min, Dir: Ana Lily Amirpour

Complete with stellar cast, electrifying visuals and a score to die for, director Ana Lily Amirpour has created a film that is as uncategorizable as her acclaimed debut, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT. Set in a hostile desert, THE BAD BATCH focuses its lens on Arlen (Suki Waterhouse) as she is unceremoniously dumped in a dystopian wasteland fenced off from civilized society. While making her way through this unforgiving environment, she is captured by a savage band of cannibals and quickly realizes she'll have to fight to live. As Arlen adjusts to life in "the bad batch," she discovers that being good or bad often depends on who you're standing next to.
