Portentous and hollow - High Life review by JB

Spoiler Alert
02/10/2019

For me, the films of Claire Denis tend to fall short of the intellectual heft to which they obviously aspire, and I found this one especially weak - I think the New Yorker review hits the nail on the head: https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-front-row/high-life-reviewed-claire-deniss-disappointing-journey-into-space. But the two previous one-star reviews are peculiarly inaccurate. Yes, the baby is central to the opening twenty minutes. But she cries for ninety seconds, in total. Literally, ninety seconds.

In space no-one can hear you scream - High Life review by JD

Spoiler Alert
30/09/2019

As PG the other reviewer rightly points out 20 mins of a baby screaming usually does for me but I thought I would give it a chance. Wrong. Not one redeeming feature in the entire film. I thought Moon was the worst space film I had seen.. Now this has topped it. I really only like posting positive reviews but if I can save just one of you from enduring this it will have been worth it.

Hated this film - High Life review by PG

Spoiler Alert

Watched the first 20 minutes and it was mainly a baby screaming, had to switch it off, to say it was irritating was to say the least.
