Tom Hiddleston stars as a doctor named Laing who moves into the 25th floor of the titular building. He’s very well-to-do, but the tenants who are richer than he is that occupy the floors above him treat him as an inferior. The building’s architect occupies the penthouse with this crazy wife.

High-Rise Diretto da Ben Wheatley
In pounding home its theme of class conflict in a dystopian condo building, this garbage-strewn, rotten film betrays J. G. Ballard’s 1975 novel to the max. While its theme couldn’t be more timely, High-Rise’s incompetent mise-en-scène reduces everything to trash. In its ugly excess, it succumbs, by accident, to Hal Foster’s anti-aesthetic: it can’t be enjoyed.

I would go so far as to suggest that Wheatley’s High-Rise is the best major film of a Ballard novel to date… The film doesn’t so much strike a balance between fidelity and invention as develop an intensely fetishistic relationship to the novel and its period that, rather like Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon (1975), comes out the other side of historical accuracy to a place far more compelling.

When one has a trademark, one must exploit it. But the wisdom of propagating any kind of white savior narrative during the charged era of Black Lives Matter surely must have seemed dubious, no? …Strangely enough, though, if you can put these considerations aside—or, I suppose, if you never cared about such considerations in the first place—“The Legend of Tarzan” is a pretty good action-adventure movie.
