Robert Pattinson had seen Denis's film White Material (2009) in 2010 and was immediately transfixed. Being a big cinephile, loving her previous films and wanting to work with her, it took him 4 years till Denis agreed to meet with him in 2015 after Pattinson heard about the project in the same year. It took another two years till filming began in fall 2017. See more »
High Life is raw, visceral, gripping and indelible. My advice is to immediately discard any and all chrome-slicked sci-fi expectations you may have, and strap in tight. Prepare for a crazy ride into deep outer space with a motley crew of death-row/lifer convicts as they endure personal struggles with autonomy, fortitude, redemption, morality, primal needs and humanity in the face of growing despair hopelessness and solitude. This is not a film for the easily triggered, nor for those who can't abide elliptical storytelling-you will not be spoon-fed. It almost certainly will have you pondering the ending and wtf you just watched. Watch it, mull it over and then watch it again. It's even better the second time. Pattinson and Binoche are both excellent. Loved it!
