High Life - Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche in Sci-Fi Thriller


Recommended Posts

This looks decent enough. And I was very impressed with Pattinson in Good Times. 




High Life comes from visionary French director Claire Denis (Beau Travail, Chocolat). The overtly sci-fi flick is a bit of a divergent path for Denis, who says she has been working on the screenplay for 15 years. It's also Denis' first English language film.


High Life stars Robert Pattinson as Monte, a criminal who has been cast into space as part of an alternative energy-finding mission. While on the spacecraft, Monte is forced to give birth to a daughter via artificial insemination. Vincent Gallo and Philip Seymour Hoffman were previously slated to portray Monte, just to give you an idea of how long this thing has been gestating.


Monte isn't the only criminal on board the spacecraft. In fact, the vessel is filled with criminals who believe they will be released if they participate in this mission to discover alternative energy in a black hole and endure sexual experimentation from the scientists on board. Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth, and Andre Benjamin also star. Awesome to see Andre 3000 acting again!

A second for this being terrible and anything that is nicely shot is definitely ripped from every other much better sci-fi film.


There was one good eye popping scene but not worth sitting through hours of dreary nothing.
