THE BAD BATCH—Mad Max with golf-carts—is the unlikely love story between the leader of a band of caring cannibals (they’ll amputate an arm and a leg, then seal your wounds with a red-hot frying pan) and Arlen (Suki Waterhouse), an involuntary protein source. Yes, it’s Ana Lily Amirpour’s latest cinematic mind-fuck, and fans of her A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) will be out in force at the Arclight on opening weekend. The film co-stars Jason Momoa as the head cannibal, Keanu Reeves as a Timothy Leary-meets-Hugh Hefner cipher, and Jim Carrey.
