The Bad Batch (2016)

Director: Ana Lily Amirpour. Cast: Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Jayda Fink, Keanu Reeves, Diego Luna, Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi. 118 min. Rated R. Romance/Sci-Fi.

In a dystopian future, young female ex-con ends up in a cannibal community south of the border, and fights her way to gain I'm not really sure what. Amirpour's second feature (after the groundbreaking A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) shows she's developing her own stylistic elements: tattoos, attraction for human flesh (vampires, cannibals, ...), and bad-ass heroines. And while the cinematography is top-notch, the director's effort to emulate Tarantino-style iconography feels too forced, as though she made an entire movie just to focus on a girl with one arm, one leg, and yellow shorts with a winking emoji.
