Cinema: High Rise

Film producer Jeremy Thomas had wanted to adapt J.G Ballard's novel since its publication in 1975 - 40 years later, how much of the then-dystopia has become our everyday reality? Beware the class warfare! 

High-Rise switches genres effortlessly - black humour one moment, dystopic parable the next - until it becomes its own singular, horrifying, immensely captivating thing. Globe & Mail

This "High-Rise" is a scathing, intoxicating visual and auditory experience, the most truthful and most powerful Ballard adaptation we've ever seen, or are likely to.

High Rise, Ben Wheatley, 2016 (119 mins)
