High Rise

(UK/Bel­gium)

An adap­ta­tion of J.G Bal­lard’s slightly apoc­a­lyp­tic novel about a lux­ury high­rise filled with af­flu­ent res­i­dents with no rea­son to leave, as ev­ery­thing de­scends into chaos. We fol­low the in­san­ity through pro­tag­o­nist Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hid­dle­ston) as he os­cil­lates be­tween ra­tio­nal and dis­turbed. A darkly comic class-war para­ble that’s com­pelling but doesn’t feel wholly orig­i­nal and is let down by some abrupt tonal shifts. Opened Jul 28.
