High Life Regizat de Claire Denis
This is an alternately disturbing, intellectually stimulating, scary, erotic, and revolting collection of moments that you’re supposed to watch, listen and react to, not necessarily process as one might a traditional linear narrative, or some kind of cinematic equation that can be unlocked like the final level of a videogame.

As is often the case in Denis’s movies, “High Life” vibrates with low-key erotic energy that can feel exciting, a little dangerous.

High Life is a chilly, ruminative film, brilliant if not exactly likable. But Pattinson, the movie’s thumping heart, is superb.

Ce spun cinefilii?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film High Life

    Rape, terror, and death at the edge of a blackhole. I may be betraying my unfamiliarity with director Claire Denis' body of work, but I can quite easily connect "Trouble Every Day's" interpretation of a 21st century Nosferatu in Vincent Gallo to Juliette Binoche's insemination-obsessed Dr. Frankenstein in "High Life." The difference here is that "High Life" ends with some semblance of hope - or maybe just oblivion.

  • Ethan's rating of the film High Life

    Claire Denis delivers another visually stunning and thought provoking film that needs multiple viewings to truly appreciate the greatness of this film. Pattinson delivers another intricate and intense performance and the look of the film feels like Solaris meets Alien. More proof that Denis is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film High Life

    At first glance this seems about life— creating it, spreading it— but in fact, it’s much more concerned with death. Mirroring our own existence, life is the fuel that gets us going, but the obsession is the destination. Denis uses a non-linear timeline and visceral imagery to evoke gut reactions, and for the most part succeeds. It’s hard to deny the film’s beauty and brutality (again— life and death).

  • Nicole Richie's rating of the film High Life

    with extremely beautiful cinematography, Claire Denis appropriates old ideas of language to create something that looks new.

  • Jason's rating of the film High Life

    What I think distinguishes Denis' form is its combination of rigour and fluidity. Agnès Godard, her regular DP and ultimate collaborator, was not available for HIGH LIFE, but Yorick Le Saux has stepped in w/ gumption. I associate w/ co-scenarist Jean-Pol Fargeau an oceanic quality, shades of Virginia Woolf -- transversal connections and movements, heave and free-float. Perhaps the cosmos itself is a kind of ocean.

  • Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film High Life

    Claire Denis' latest cinematic effort is as fascinating and disturbing as it gets. A really dark and raw sci-fi film about morality. Plus, her unique directing sensibility is particularly striking and really moving in the father/baby scenes. Here, Pattinson delivers another astonishing performance and the cinematography and art direction are gorgeous. It has its narrative imperfections but still an amazing film.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film High Life

    Yes, it is a "flawed" picture. I accept it with its flaws.

  • Bilouaustria's rating of the film High Life

    Viennale _ I love Claire Denis. "Us go home" is one the best french films from the 1990s. She has a strong personality and "High Life" is ambitious but still is a desaster. There is almost nothing to save from this sexual "Solaris" that ends up being as empty as a Malick sermon. But it is fine to be radical and to fail sometimes. She gave us "Trouble everyday" that way. Keep going Claire, keep taking risks.
