In a season of sequels, franchises, and bloated blockbusters, Ana Lily Amirpour‘s “The Bad Batch” feels like a cinematic oasis. The director behind “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night” returns with a bold, post-apocalyptic vision, but one that isn’t afraid to have some groove to it as well.
Starring Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, and Giovanni Ribisi, the film is set in a dystopian future United States, in which a young girl condemned to wander a desert wasteland is captured by a community of cannibals. Managing to escape, the girl later encounters and befriends one of her former captors — but will the two of them be able to avoid getting slaughtered in this world where savagery is central to survival? Powering the unique tale is a soundtrack that includes ’80s faves Culture Club, revered electronic artist Pantha Du Prince, and ’90s wonders Ace Of Base.
“The Bad Batch” opens on June 23rd, and the soundtrack will land digitally the same day via Lakeshore Records and Mondo, who will also team on the CD/LP release later this summer. Preview the soundtrack and check out the tracklist below.
