Highly Suspect Reviews: High Life

High Life Movie Review


I know some of you would like to ship Robert Pattinson out to space but I can only assume you’ve not been watching his post-Twilight output. He’s really proven himself as an actor and someone who likes to work with really interesting directors. High Life is no exception to that as he’s being lensed by the legendary (if you’re French or really dig art films) Claire Denis. He plays one of a group of prisoners that have agreed to go on a possibly suicidal space mission to study a black hole in exchange for their freedom. Told in a non-linear fashion we are initially shown that Pattinson, and an infant, are the only survivors. What happened to Mia Goth, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, and the rest of his shipmates? High Life reveals the mystery at its own pace. And Chris and Alan reveal their feelings about High Life. Check out the review here.


Directed by: Claire Denis

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth, Lars Eidinger, Agata Buzek
