AwardsIMDbMetaCriticRotten Tomatoes

Robert Pattinson stars as Monte, a convicted killer who’s sent into space as part of a futuristic fertility experiment; the scientist-sorceress in charge is Dr. Dibs (Juliette Binoche), a chilly temptress in a lab coat, who happens to harbor her own criminal secret.

High Life
 is a work of dystopian science fiction, unsettling by design: The facility that houses Monte, Dr. Dibs and the other prisoner-subjects (they include André Benjamin) is a drab, cube-like structure, floating dismally through space. But in Denis’s vision—and as shot by cinematographer Yorick Le Saux—it’s an image of stark, lonely beauty, a metaphor for the desolation felt by the misfits locked inside.

High Life
 is a chilly, ruminative film, brilliant if not exactly likable. But Pattinson, the movie’s thumping heart, is superb: his face alone is a star map of tenderness, suspicion and ruthlessness. In this sometimes alienating movie, he lays a trail for us to follow, sticking close by our side right to the end.
–Time Magazine

“Claire Denis is one of our greatest living filmmakers, but if you’re new to her work, the elliptical syntax and dreamlike intensity of her filmmaking might well leave you feeling perplexed—or seduced, or a queasy mix of both.”
–The Los Angeles Times
“Not surprisingly Denis cites Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris as one of the science-fiction films that inspired her.” –Chicago Reader
“Now 73, Denis continues to probe her own tangle of feelings about love, family, corrosive intimacy, sexual violence and the power of myth.” –Chicago Tribune
Cast Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin
