46% of critics like the film.
No matter how strange or confusing the story gets, details and humor ground the narrative, with the blanks filled in by a simple guiding premise about the importance of human connection and artistic expression.
Running close to two hours, the movie is overlong and not without draggy patches, but it’s sustained enough to keep you watching.
Though there’s much to savor in the pic’s lavishly distressed visuals and soundscape, its narrative feels increasingly stretched and desultory.
In short, I did not like it though I’ll still line up for Armipour’s third feature.
As a whole, Amirpour has a lot to be proud of with The Bad Batch. Her work is bold, unflinching, and often challenging, and I would expect nothing less from her as a filmmaker.
Even if The Bad Batch calls to mind the post-apocalyptic landscape of Mad Max, Amirpour’s visual sensibility remains strikingly unique.
