High Life

Dir. Claire Denis. France/UK, 2018. 1h 53m. Starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth, Lars Eidinger, Agata Buzek.

A group of death-row inmates are assigned to harvest energy from black holes with the belief they will be freed if their mission is successful. The English-language debut from legendary French auteur Claire Denis (Beau Travail, White Material) contemplates existence, evolution, and sexual desire in this mystifying sci-fi odyssey.

‘Pattinson is as subtle, exacting and unpredictable as he's ever been, transmitting bone-deep loneliness and resigned fatalism with very little dialogue to help him.’ ★★★★★ Simran Hans, The Observer

‘An(other) uncompromising work of art from the greatest living filmmaker.’ ★★★★★ Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
