"The Bad Batch" follows Arlen (Suki Waterhouse) after she's left in a Texas wasteland fenced off from civilization. While trying to navigate the unforgiving landscape, Arlen is captured by a savage band of cannibals led by the mysterious Miami Man (Jason Momoa). With her life on the line she makes her way to The Dream (Keanu Reeves). As she adjusts to life in 'the bad batch' Arlen discovers that being good or bad mostly depends on who's standing next to you.

A second gem from this talented auteur director - The Bad Batch review by PT

Spoiler Alert

I believe Ana Lily Amirpour has made another cult classic here, just like her first feature, A girl walks home alone at night. Although this offering is more mainstream, it is far from the norm. Again skateboards and another hallucination scene feature, as in her first film. The cinematography and framing of shots is what impressed me the most with this film. Exactly like A girl walks home alone at night, certain shots are just something extraordinary.

Suki Waterhouse, one of the bad batch, who are criminals and outcasts, is banished by society into the desert wilderness. Right from the off she has to fight for her life. Suki Waterhouse is excellent at playing Arlene, vulnerable but with a deep inner strength simultaneously.

Really enjoyed Keanu Reeve's role also, as a self styled Messiah like, dream maker .

Great stuff.
