Slow and moody But mostly slow.
Slow and moody, Claire Denis’ existential sci-fi may be set light years away in a spaceship travelling to a black hole, but it’s still not quite as interesting as paint drying. Not much plot, but there’s always Robert Pattinson’s thousand-yard stare, Juliette Binoche in a sex-machine thingy, dogs, a baby and lots and lots of bodily fluids. Art, eh?
High Life is super stylistic and enigmatic but overall might be too challenging for any kind of enjoyment (other than joyous child rearing montages) or search for deeper meaning. A contemplative experience but as bleak as hell.
