Never fear, director Claire Denis’ first foray into English-language filmmaking doesn’t appear to have put any kind of hitch in her unique step. The “Chocolat” and “Trouble Every Day” filmmaker has turned her attention to the wilds of space with her Robert Pattinson-starring “High Life.” The ambitious sci-fi thriller puts a twist on classic space films like “2001” and “Alien,” unspooling a strange and sexy exploration of both the human condition and the universe itself.
The film follows a group of prisoners, including Pattinson and Mia Goth, in the midst of a journey that will most likely not ever bring them back home. Juliette Binoche is also on deck as the nefarious Dr. Dibs, who has her own reasons for traveling on the black hole-bound spaceship, mainly centered around performing shocking and bizarre experiments on the ship’s criminal inhabitants.
