The Bad Batch

Ana Lily Amirpour’s brilliant indie debut feature, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, was to die for. Tagged an Iranian vampire western, the 2015 film served up a flawless pastiche dish and a delightful convergence of differing periods and genres of cinema. Her follow-up, The Bad Batch, sports a bigger budget, high-profile names, an arresting aesthetic but a flawed narrative.

'The Bad Batch' Promotional Posters Are Anything But BAD

All these things you’ve done, put you right here, with me — Before The Bad Batch opens on June 23, you might want to check out the latest character posters from Ana Lily Amirpour's vicious post-apocalyptic fairy tale featuring the headless bodies of Keanu Reeves, Jason Mamoa, and Suki Waterhouse. But if recent trailers indicate the type of affair we're getting into, it's fair to say Amirpour's The Bad Batch offers a contrasting proposition with a tad more promotional flare as compared to her 2014 dreamy genre mash-up A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. But if you were a fan of her debut - as was I, then I suspect you are here to see Amirpour's artistic lens at play.
