High Life

2018 • dir Claire Denis w/Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth, André Benjamin • 113 min • DCP

Revered French director Claire Denis’ first English language feature is this off-the-rails, psycho-sexual Euro-art/sci-fi film. On a spacecraft traveling on a doomed mission to explore a black hole, a group of convicts deal with their own isolation and mortality – and the strange, sexual experiments of their shipboard doctor (Binoche).

“High Life will send you back out into the world with a totally new idea of what black holes symbolize. It is an elliptical film, yes, because it will answer only the questions that you did not think to ask.”
– Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic

“In its final moments, as throughout, High Life is simultaneously hopeful and foreboding, distant and deeply moving.”
– Oscar Goff, Boston Hassle
