Salton Sea in the Movies
Last updated 6/24/2017 at 8:53am
T.V shows, movies and commercials, whether low budget or blockbuster, the Salton Sea remains a firm favorite with writers and directors. The latest offering is by Ana Lily Amirpour, classed as one of the most exciting young directors working in cinema today.
Her first feature, the Iranian "vampire spaghetti western" A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, was a huge hit on the indie circuit back in 2015. Her new film, The Bad Batch, hits video on demand services and area theaters this weekend, and has been hailed as one of the most anticipated films of the year.
The film tells the story of Arlen (Suki Waterhouse) who is sent to the containment facility formerly known as Texas, and promptly loses an arm and a leg to some cannibals. Along the way, she meets the mysterious Miami Man (Jason Momoa), and makes her way towards a town called Comfort, where The Dream (Keanu Reeves) awaits her.
