Claire Denis on sex as an escape - in space! | HIGH LIFE | TIFF 2019

  • Published on Mar 22, 2019
  • The ever-daring, limitless French auteur is back at it again with the intergalactic head trip High Life, continuing to create a cinema without borders. TIFF Bell Lightbox’s third retrospective of Claire Denis - an artist whose boldness, curiosity, and uniquely sensual approach to cinema constantly invite us to see the world in different ways - screens March 8-31, 2019.
    In High Life’s near future, a spaceship proceeds on a mission to find a new energy source. Its destination: the black hole within closest reach of Earth. The ship’s crew is a collection of dangerous prisoners with nothing left to lose. At first, Monte (Robert Pattinson) is the only crew member awake, rigorously tending to the computer and life-support system to keep everyone alive as they hurtle through deep space. Monte is also caring for a baby daughter who was born on board - an anomaly that is just the first sign of the chaos to come. As Monte's self-discipline slips, the crew awakens and conflicts erupt. Working again with the brilliant Juliette Binoche and supported by a cast that includes André Benjamin and Mia Goth, master filmmaker Claire Denis guides her actors into daring new territory. Some scenes in High Life will shock, but that shock propels us toward revelation. Denis pushes her science fiction into realms that, at times, recall Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky. But this film carries a fearless curiosity that is all her own.

      This movie is much more experimental and isn't for everyone. If you're watching Pattinson movies for Batman you should watch Good Time.

    This film made me feel sexual desire in humans absolutely disgusting and grotesque and evil.
