The Bad Batch

Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa and Keanu Reeves lead Ana Lily Amipour's (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) dystopian romance set in a Texas wasteland inhabited by cannibals.

"[Suki Waterhouse plays] one of thousands of Americans deemed unacceptable to civilised society. While wandering in her desert exile, she is captured by a community of cannibals. She manages to escape, soon ending up at a very different enclave of outcasts. Our heroine is safe here, but still does not quite feel that she has found her tribe.

"On an excursion beyond the gates of her new shelter, she encounters one of her former cannibal captors (Momoa), who ends up requiring her help. But can she do it without one of them getting slaughtered in the human-eat-human world where savagery is considered central to survival?" (Toronto International Film Festival)

Though there's much to savour in the pic's lavishly distressed visuals and soundscape, its narrative feels increasingly stretched and desultory.

The Bad Batch is expertly constructed and looks great: Amirpour has presumably been inspired by Alma Har'el's documentary Bombay Beach, and has picked up the same atmosphere of bone-dry decay as well as using the actual place as a location.

The story runs out of steam - with a full ninety minutes still to go.

Running close to two hours, the movie is overlong and not without draggy patches, but it's sustained enough to keep you watching.

It's cinematic blue balls. Lots of exciting build-up to, well, lots of frustration.
