What does it mean to have a penthouse in poverty-filled Brazil? Interviewing residents who can view the country from above, High-Rise is about the social issues, politics, and human lives in Brazil today.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
a brilliant documentary. really liked the penthouse-owner who said "I love the fact that you are making a documentary about positive things.Usually, people only make documentaries about killings and other disasters." They are so disconnected from reality, so "above it all", literally, that they are unable to catch the irony of the situation.What do you lose living in a penthouse?The part of you that is down to earth.
Couldn't finish watching this totally uninteresting documentary about uninteresting people.. Not sure if the filmmakers asked the wrong questions or were too hands-off, but whatever it was, the people interviewed reveal nothing worth knowing about. Surely these penthouse residents have more character than what showed up here...or maybe not? Depressing.
Perturbador. Realmente coloca o espectador em contato com a nata da superficialidade de pessoas economicamente privilegiadas e politicamente alienadas. Não há possibilidade de identificação com as personagens, tamanha inadequação de seus comentários e valores. Bravo!
The viewer has to make an effort to actually pick the interesting elements (if there are any) in this honestly avoidable (did i made it up?) doc.
All i could see was rich people pouring poor, regardless and insensitive comments, probably thinking they meant something just because a camera was recording them.
