Movie review: 'The Bad Batch' reveals a muddled but visually striking Texas-set dystopia

The title of "The Bad Batch," Ana Lily Amirpour's arid and feverish new movie, refers to the assorted undesirables who have been exiled by the U.S. government to a vast and barely habitable stretch of Texas wasteland. Under a merciless sun, a sullen new arrival named Arlen (the British actress Suki Waterhouse) is promptly captured by a gang of iron-pumping cannibals who tie her up, drug her and divest her of an arm and a leg.

Movie review: 'After the Storm' is a quiet family drama that glows

Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda's enchanting movies are woven from the same gentle cloth: quiet, deceptively uncomplicated stories of families. We watch, leaning in to listen, waiting for something earthshaking to happen – and suddenly we realize that these characters have become a part of us. "Nobody Knows" was the heartbreaking tale of four young siblings abandoned by their mother; "Like Father, Like Son" brought us two couples devastated to learn that their children were switched at birth; "Our Little Sister" introduced a stepsibling into a family of grown sisters, letting us watch as she – and we – became part of a clan.
