Dir: Ben Wheatley | UK | 2015 | 119 mins
Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, Elisabeth Moss
Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons and Elisabeth Moss star in Ben Wheatley’s (Kill List, Sightseers) much-anticipated adaptation of J. G. Ballard’s savage, brilliant 1975 novel, a satire of Thatcherite excess and the moral emptiness of consumerist values. Hiddleston is Dr. Robert Laing who’s seduced by the glamour of his new apartment block before flaws start to emerge and in parallel, cracks in its society start to show, in the form of drugs, alcohol, sexual perversion, violence and nihilism. Wheatley’s astonishing film is brave, daring and true to Ballard’s anarchic vision.
“There’s almost nothing Ben Wheatley gets wrong in High-Rise, his coolly immaculate film of the JG Ballard science-fiction classic.” **** Tim Robey, Telegraph
