      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      High Life is as visually arresting as it is challenging, confounding, and ultimately rewarding - which is to say it's everything film fans expect from director Claire Denis.

      TJ I immediately stopped watching after the infant nude frontal scene at the start of the movie. The director should be in prison for this, to take away a babies innocence like that is disgusting to say the least. I wouldn't recommend anyone watch this filth and I wish I had never seen it. Movie should be boycotted and directors in prison Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Lottie L Terrible! Space snuff. There's a plot there, but the film makes no sense. It's weird, perverted, and unnecessarily sexual. It even shows an infants genitals at one point… you can't do that! Why does this have such a high rating? The movie ended 10 minutes ago, but my husband and I are still debating about what this film was actually about. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Ryan R Really slow, drawn out, and just generally uninteresting. I don't understand how critics like movies such as this. It isn't thought-provoking at all. It's just boring. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Tiago S oofff... that was a bad one Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review mike n This movie is nothing short of disgusting. Near opening scene of a child's privates served as zero relevance to the story. There is no redeemed quality in this film. I shut it off after 30 minutes. If it was the last movie on earth, I wouldn't enen use it to wipe my a$$. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review Damien B Very uncomfortable to watch.

      Sophie Monks Kaufman Little White Lies All I can say is that it's a pleasure to have my reviewing faculties blown and my psyche splintered by this master filmmaker. Rated: 5/5 Dec 23, 2019 Full Review Donald Clarke Irish Times There is much of Tarkovsky's Solaris in the main body and the flashbacks... could be lifted straight from the same director's Stalker. High Life is, however, stuffed with Denis' characteristic philosophical derangement. Rated: 3/5 Dec 21, 2019 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review It goes out into the universe to look in...it is first and foremost a film by Claire Denis. May 22, 2019 Full Review Paul Kanieski KSQD Community Radio Composed of equal parts mystery, thriller and speculative fiction, High Life starts off slowly but rewards patience, gradually working towards a finale which weaves elements of Interstellar and 2001: A Space Odyssey into something uniquely Claire Denis. Jul 19, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It may be too lofty to call High Life a microcosm of humanity; then again, it may not be. Denis seems to liken the isolation of a few people trapped on a ship hurtling through space to the entire human experience. Rated: 4/4 Mar 3, 2022 Full Review Taylor Baker Drink in the Movies Episode 37: Edge of Tomorrow / Forbidden Planet / High Life Rated: 78/100 Oct 4, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
