‘High Life’ Review

Stars: Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth, Agata Buzek, Lars Eidinger, Claire Tran, Ewan Mitchell, Gloria Obianyo, Jessie Ross, Victor Banerjee | Written by Claire Denis, Jean-Pol Fargeau, Geoff Cox | Directed by Claire Denis

High Life is directed by Claire Denis and is her thirteenth film in an esteemed critically acclaimed filmography, but also stands as a few firsts; being her English language debut and her first collaboration with teen heartthrob turned indie megastar, Robert Pattinson. High Life is a low budget high concept sensual thriller. It’s boisterously provocative and sensually stoic. A conundrum of explicit desire and morbid curiosity that burns its way into your brain with an illustrious haze of pragmatic intensity.

The filmmaking on offer is simply superb with the cinematography from Yorick Le Sau being a stellar highlight. The framing and composition are distant and therefore evokes this highly daunting theme of isolation. It

High Life Review

In the Champions League of contemporary filmmaking, Claire Denis, the French writer and director synonymous with her unique dramas that seem uncannily able to balance scope and incision, is a regular finalist. “High Life”, Denis’s latest, is no stain on the brand she has built up among her appreciators over the past three decades; and, for newcomers, it offers a careful glimpse into a mystifying world and a wonderful creative mind.

High Life” is interested primarily in habitation, human and otherwise, so it’s natural that we begin in a small garden on a tiny spaceship somewhere in the outer reaches of the known universe, accompanied audibly by a baby’s crying. Human nature (specifically intimacy) and its strange ability to invade even the coldest and most clinical of environments seems to be Denis’s primary subject matter. And the film’s title, an ironic spin on the cliché

Movie Review – High Life (2018)

High Life, 2018.

Directed by Claire Denis.

Starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth, Agata Buzek, Lars Eidinger, Claire Tran, Ewan Mitchell, Gloria Obianyo, Scarlett Lindsey, and Jessie Ross.

Synopsis:

A father and his daughter struggle to survive in deep space where they live in isolation.

High Life adopts the nonlinear storytelling format in a confidently directed and masterfully edited manner that expands the gravity of each individual narrative act juxtaposed against one another. Directed by Claire Denis, the highly unnerving and wildly ambitious space drama takes a group of death row inmates placing them into a new setting to serve science, also coming across as a harrowing intergalactic Stanford Prison Experiment.

Also, by serving science, I mean the prisoners are Not hurling through outer space (their spacecraft resembles a cargo container when seen floating) towards a black hole to harness whatever mysteries it holds for infinite Earth resources

High Life – Review

Robert Pattinson in a scene from Claire Denis’ High Life. Courtesy of A24.

For her first English-language film, renowned French director Claire Denis sends Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche into space on a mission to a black hole. Beautiful yet bleak, High Life is more contemplative and ambitious than the typical space drama, but it perhaps does not rank among the best works of the 72-year-old innovative auteur director who gave us Beau Travail and 35 Shots Of Rum.

The director co-wrote the script with Jean-Pol Fargeau. High Life opens on a spaceship far out among the stars, with a man (Pattinson) and a baby as the sole survivors. We know there is a backstory to this, and eventually it is revealed in flashback. The film has moments of violence, bursts of sometimes graphic sexuality, and maintains a creepy tension, but it also moves slowly for most of its running time,

High Life Trailer: Robert Pattinson Is a Single Dad in Space

High Life Trailer: Robert Pattinson Is a Single Dad in Space
A24 has unveiled the first trailer for High Life. Robert Pattinson may have started out his career as the dude from Twilight, but he's since gone on to become a truly terrific actor in his own right who is constantly making interesting choices that seem to be motivated creatively, as opposed to for financial gain. In this case, he's taking part in a sci-fi/thriller that sees him raising a daughter all alone in space in a less than ideal and very tense situation.

We start off with some footage of Robert Pattinson raising his baby daughter in what looks like a rather normal day to day fatherly scenario, save for the fact that he's doing so in space. It's mostly atmospheric, with strange and alluring shots of unwitting astronauts aboard this vessel, seemingly at odds with one another. As things progress, the tension rises and something is clearly not as it should be.

Official Us Trailer for Claire Denis' Weird, Wacky Sci-Fi Film 'High Life'

"Break the laws of nature, and you'll pay for it." A24 has finally unveiled their own full-length trailer for the indie sci-fi film High Life, the latest from acclaimed French filmmaker Claire Denis. This low budget, "eerily sexy" sci-fi space drama premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and is also playing at the New York and Sitges Film Festivals last year. The story is about a man, as played by Robert Pattinson, stuck on a spaceship heading to a distant star. He tries to interact with the rest of the crew who are slowly going mad on the long voyage. Reactions from the festivals have been divisive, with extreme love and hate for this super artistic, slow burn sci-fi drama. The full cast includes Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth, Lars Eidinger, Agata Buzek, and Claire Tran. If you've been curious about this, check it out - it is considerably

Robert Pattinson Stars in Trailer for 'High Life'

  • Cinelinx
Robert Pattinson (of Twilight fame) stars in a brand new trailer for the upcoming sci-fi film High Life. Originally premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, the film is due to arrive in theaters on April 12th. More inside...

High Life stars Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche in the lead roles with Claire Denis directing, and follows a group of prisoners who are forced to work on a mysterious project in space. During the journey, the prisoners are subjected to unnatural experiments by the scientists on board with them, with apparently devastating results if the trailer is anything to go by.

I've always enjoyed a good science fiction mystery and High Life appears to fit the bill perfectly. With a lone ship out in space and hints of a black hole, the trailer looks like a cross between 2001: A Space Odyssey, Interstellar, and just a hint of Sunshine.

‘High Life’ Trailer: Claire Denis Puts Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche in Orbit

After helping the best film of 2018 reach a larger audience, A24 will hopefully be doing the same when it comes to Claire Denis’ erotic, frightening, beautiful, and strange sci-fi odyssey High Life. An unclassifiable, riveting journey into the depths of the unknown (both as it pertains to space and human desires), they’ve now released the first U.S. trailer for the film starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche.

Josh Lewis said in his review, “While High Life has understandably drawn all kinds of comparisons to the 60s and 70s cerebral sci-fi canon (notably Solaris and 2001: A Space Odyssey), for both its abstract use of space imagery and its minimalist ship design which more often than not resembles an artificially-lit hospital filled with dated technology, its soul is firmly in the sensibilities of its filmmaker, French master Claire Denis, who mines the genre for a deeply sensorial and moving

At first Monte (Robert Pattinson) is the only crew member awake, rigorously tending to the ship to keep them all alive as they hurtle through space. But Monte is also caring for a baby daughter, born on board. This anomaly is only the first sign of the chaos to come. As Monte’s self-discipline slips, the crew awakens and conflicts erupt.”

Robert Pattinson is on a Spacecraft Full of Convicts and Death Row Inmates in The Trailer For High Life

Robert Pattinson has a new sci-fi space thriller coming out called High Life and it actually looks pretty damn good. The movie doesn’t look anything like I expected it to be and that’s a good thing. It looks better, darker, and more insane.

The story centers on Pattinson’s character who is on board a spacecraft that filled with convicts and death row inmates who are being used as guinea pigs in a mission heading towards the black hole closest to Earth. There’s a lot more involved with the story than just that, though. Here’s the full synopsis:

Deep space. Beyond our solar system. Monte and his infant daughter Willow live together aboard a spacecraft, in complete isolation. A solitary man, whose strict self-discipline is a protection against desire –his own and that of others– Monte fathered the girl against his will. His sperm was used to inseminate Boyse,

High Life Trailer: Claire Denis and Robert Pattinson Get Space Madness

In Claire Denis' High Life, a group of criminals accept a mission in space to become the subjects of a human reproduction experiment. Things go from complicated to worse to hallucinogenic when a storm of cosmic rays hit their ship. Wild Bunch has released the first trailer for Denis' (White Material) latest outing and the film is already sparking divisive debate following an early screening at Tiff. Based on the first footage here, it seems like High Life will be a slow-burning and thought-provoking science fiction film for those with a tolerance for artsy space movies bordering on the incomprehensible (also see Marc Caro's Dante 01). Beside Robert Pattinson, the cast includes Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth, Lars Eidinger, Agata Buzek, and Claire Tran....

Robert Pattinson Heads to Space in First Trailer for Claire Denis’ ‘High Life’

She may be expanding her scope (and reaching entirely new audiences with her first foray into the English language with a Robert Pattinson-led A24 release), but Claire Denis has lost none of her daring vision with High Life. An unclassifiable, riveting journey into the depths of the unknown (both as it pertains to space and human desires), ahead of a release in France, the first brief teaser and more has arrived.

Josh Lewis said in his review, “While High Life has understandably drawn all kinds of comparisons to the 60s and 70s cerebral sci-fi canon (notably Solaris and 2001: A Space Odyssey), for both its abstract use of space imagery and its minimalist ship design which more often than not resembles an artificially-lit hospital filled with dated technology, its soul is firmly in the sensibilities of its filmmaker, French master Claire Denis, who mines the genre for a deeply

This low budget sci-fi drama premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and it's playing at the New York Film Festival as well. The story is about a man, played by Robert Pattinson, stuck on a spaceship heading to a distant star. He tries to interact with the rest of the crew who are slowly going crazy on the extended voyage.

Robert Pattinson Hangs Out With Shia Labeouf's Ex After Fka Twigs Romance Reports
Well, things just got a lot more interesting. Following news that Shia Labeouf and Mia Goth got divorced and Shia is now dating Robert Pattinson's ex-fiancée, Fka Twigs, Rob and Mia hit the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain together on Thursday. The two were on hand to promote their upcoming film, High Life, and seemed to be in good spirits as they shared a few laughs and chatted with their costars including Agata Buzek and Scarlett Lindsey. Before you jump to any conclusions, though, it's likely that Rob and Mia are just friends. They also attended the Toronto Film Festival to do press for their movie earlier this month.

Rob and Twigs first got together in 2014 but called off their engagement in October 2017. The actor was most recently linked to Suki Waterhouse after they were caught kissing on a movie date in London in July. While the status

Tiff 2018: ‘High Life’ Review: Dir . Claire Denis (2018)

High Life review: Claire Denis’ English language debut is absolutely the polarising film to play at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. At our screening alone, there were dozens of walkouts, the film one of those ones you’ll either like or loathe.

The non-linear narrative structure could be one of the factors, and also the difficult subject matter. There are also many scenes that are tough to watch, but it’s the prior foreboding which is the main influence behind this – there’s always threat that something truly awful is about to happen. While this is sometimes certainly the case, Denis has crafted a very different sci-fi piece to anything you will have seen this year, or indeed up on the screen before.

Robert Pattinson leads the cast as Monte, a spaceman on a vessel with what appears to be his baby daughter. How he got there is not initially disclosed,
