High Life (18)
Cast. Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Andre Benjamin, Mia Goth.
French auteur Claire Denis’s breathlessly awaited English language debut stars Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche in a tale of criminals flung into deep space. Monte is a criminal who volunteers for a mysterious space mission investigating black holes to avoid imprisonment. In a spaceship light years from Earth he is accompanied by a gang of fellow crooks and the ship’s doctor, Dibs (Binoche) – who has her own motivations for being aboard, including carrying out strange sexual experiments amongst the captives as they float through space. Fearless, daring and visually arresting, High Life is another spectacular artistic achievement from this most versatile of filmmakers. Rapturously received by critics and prompting comparisons to Kubrick and Tarkovsky, this masterful film is sure to make an impact.
