Ep233: Amirpour de Force / Ana Lily Amirpour Pt. 2

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast concludes its two-part look at the feature films of Ana Lily Amirpour...by talking to Ana Lily Amirpour! The writer/director of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and The Bad Batch (which opens today at Chicago's Music Box Theatre) sat down with Ian a couple weeks ago, mere hours before a controversial Q&A that became a minor social media kerfuffle.

Amirpour talks about powering through the transition from small indie to larger-scale filmmaking; adapting her work to comics; and the joys of hiding Easter Eggs in her movies for engaged audience members to crack open.

Also, Ian won't shut up about Wonder Woman, and invites listeners to skip the multiplex this weekend so some truly kick-ass female creators can share the box office love.

Episode 233 has been tattooed, exiled, and left to fend for itself!
