Joseph Kahn’s Bodied, the music video auteur’s first feature since 2011’s Detention, premiered way back in 2017 as part of the Toronto International Film Festival’s “Midnight Madness” section to generally favorable reviews. Since then, the film has made pitstops at Fantastic Fest, AFI Fest, and, most recently, the Melbourne International Film Festival. The satirical film tells the story of how a progressive grad student, Adam Merkin (played by American Vandal’s Calum Worthy), becomes an accidental battle rapper and whose success breeds outrage. Bodied also stars Jackie Long, Shoniqua Shandai, Walter Perez, and Rory Uphold, with special appearances by such well-known battle rappers as Dizaster, Dumbfoundead, and Hollow Da Don.
