For movie and music geeks, one of the most highly-anticipated films coming out this summer is The Bad Batch.
Writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s dystopian cannibal tale is a follow-up to her instant cult classic A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, which not only established her as a visionary filmmaker, but also showed her ear for music with one the best soundtracks in years.
Much like Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, and Steven Soderbergh, Amirpour not only has good taste in tunes, but she also knows how to use them to evoke feeling and meaning into a cinematic scope.
Lakeshore Records and Mondo will release The Bad Batch soundtrack digitally on June 23rd and on CD/LP later this summer. The soundtrack includes songs from Darkside, White Lies and Ace of Base. Also featured is dialogue from the film’s stars including Keanu Reeves, Suki Waterhouse and Jason Momoa.
