Ana Lily Amirpour on ‘The Batch Batch:’ “Dark, Weird, Crazy, Chaotic”

"For me, making a film is this crazy, psychedelic, internal experience, and it takes a while to fully see what is going on."

“For me, making a film is this crazy, psychedelic, internal experience, and it takes a while to fully see what is going on,” explains director Ana Lily Amirpour about “The Batch Batch,” her new film that follows protagonist Arlen (played by Suki Waterhouse) through what Nicolas Rapold describes as “American desert borderlands occupied by violent exiles and daft cult members. Forget about a wall: Amirpour’s highly anticipated second feature obeys no limits, stretching Arlen’s travails across a canvas that’s big in every way—wide-screen wasteland panoramas, showboating action with needle-drop music cues, stars in cartoonish roles [Keanu Reeves, Jim Carrey, Jason Momoa], and a lanky against-type heroine who is all but holding a sign reading ‘badass.'”

Amirpour admits, “Movies are fun to me, and I think at the same time, there’s definitely very real, dark, weird, f*****-up, crazy, chaotic things to put in the soup.”
