From director Claire Denis and starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Andre Benjamin, and Mia Goth. High Life – in Theaters April 12, 2019.

Monte (Robert Pattinson) and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The crew—death-row inmates led by a doctor (Juliette Binoche) with sinister motives—has vanished. As the mystery of what happened onboard the ship is unraveled, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole.

Anything by Claire Denis is must see for me.
Anyone not familiar with her work should proceed with caution.

Yea, Trouble Every Day is her first film I believe I saw. Not for everyone that is for sure.

So it’s not a stoner comedy? *drat*

This comes out on DVD/BD tomorrow. Not familiar with it, but like good science fiction. Worth a blind buy?

If you are not familiar with the director's other works, do not blind buy.

Claire Denis’ first English language film is a winner that goes into deeper and darker themes of human existence than your typical sci-fi film.

4/5

Tried to watch the other night.
Seemed a little silly...switched to an episode of The Boys after about 1/2 hour.

I'm hearing and reading very discordant things about this movie, much of them not very appealing. Stil I'm intrigued.

This was OK. I didn't find it as interesting as I thought I would. Pattinson is turning into one hell of an actor however.

At least one good reason to see it, considering I would probably not see his Batman.

Knowing nothing about this film, why exactly was a man and his young daughter in a deep space mission with a crew of death row inmates? That synopsis is almost crazy enough to make me want to watch.

There's way more to it than that and way more crazy than the synopsis leads on.

I'm sure many did.
There are a lot of problems with the movie...it isn't just one thing.
