This was another Dallas International Film Festival entry I watched. I didn't plan on watching it as I didn't know what it was. My friend though really wanted to see it. I can say I am happy I did. The director here is Ben Wheatley who has done some other wild genre mixers. He did one of the best segments in the ABCs of Death (U is for Unearthed) and a feature film called Sightseers. The writer Am... read more

Sick film, sick direction; Wheatley erases sexuality and focus on violence even gratuitous. The ending conduces to a big mess instead of a depuration. Weak feminine characters and confusing leading character Laing.
View all High-Rise reviews
When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- September 2016 (23 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 58min. First Viewing While the story does get a bit too frantically tangled, and the film never reaches the sky-high satirical milestones that it aspires to, High-Rise is messy critique of class and social structures that hits many of its targets, and is, at the very least, never less that interesting. I wasn't the biggest fan of the ending, but the story until that point was strong, and the cast is excellent. Also of note is the production design, which strikes the tricky balance"

" "This design does just what a teaser should do. It grabs your attention with an eye-catching image while giving almost nothing away, simply hinting at the dark tone of the film.""

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: January (30 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 10th Here's yet another film I keep seeing on best-of lists for 2016, and in some ways I guess I can understand why. The acting is stellar and the visuals are often impressive. I wasn't so impressed with the story though, which gets a little bogged down in repetition and ran longer than I felt it needed to as a result. Plus the ending left me with a feeling of, really? That's it? ...so I can't say it'll be on my list for 2016, but I guess it was worth watching once. Curren"

" 7.24Horror maverick director Ben Wheatley adapts a JG Ballard novel about a social class war inside a modern residential skyscraper. The movie is a cerebral nuthouse with unusual characters."

From The Superb To The Crap - Movies Seen In 2016 (284 movies items)

"High Rise is a movie about the social class system and hierarchy within a tower block and how it all comes crumbling down. Although the movie is visually intriguing, the same cannot be said for the plot and it's progression. This movie is a thriller that will have you firmly in your seat, not balancing on it's edge. The script was rather uninteresting, as your mind may easily wonder from the events taking place. The protagonist Robert Laing was well cast and well played by Tom Hiddleston, Richar"
