The Bad Batch

The Bad Batch ★★★★

I have only seen the first few minutes of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, but it was enough to catch my interest. I was excited to go and see Ana Lily Amirpour's new film, especially because the visuals and the cast looked incredible.
I didn't know what to expect from the story, and I think it is part of the reason why I wasn't disapointed (like many people seem to have been by its simplicity - or its "lack thereof"). The overall dystopian and colorful atmosphere created by the great locations, the use of lighting and the characters' costume designs is the perfect background to build up the story of a young and hopeless girl trying to make it in a society of outcasts.
Sure, there are some plot holes, and the writing could've been a little more subtle, but the performances are beyond great, the chemistry between the characters is palpable and fascinating, and the visuals are very neat and are the perfect balance between being beautiful and slightly disturbing. All I'm saying is that I enjoyed every minute of The Bad Batch and I have trouble understanding why people are so harsh towards this film.
Oh, and one more thing: CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE PIECE OF ART THAT IS THIS POSTER??
