The Bad Batch (M18)
Starring Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa
Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour
This is one long strange trip set in a desert-dystopia purgatory.A drifter (model-turned-actress Suki Waterhouse) is captured by cannibals (Jason Momoa is one of them) who then lop off her arm and leg — to the tune of Ace of Base’s ‘The Sign’— for chow.
She somehow manages to escape to a commune of outcasts run by a cult leader (Keanu Reeves channelling Morpheus via Pablo Escobar). Nothing really makes sense after that.
Maybe this movie would be better experienced at night, either inebriated or medicated. When you’re done, head home, hit the sack, and have weird dreams about it. (**)
