Film Recommendation of the Week: High Life (2018)
In this science fiction thriller, Claire Denis takes us far beyond space, but into a world of psychological terror, violence, and sex. A group of criminals serving the death sentence are sent on a mission to extract energy from a black hole, but their lives on the ship are far bleaker than anything outside of it.
Robert Pattinson is flawless as the mysterious Monte as the story jumps between his life onboard, beginning with the raising of his baby daughter, Willow. A mesmerising and disturbing tale of emotional torture, High Life might not be for everyone, but will certainly leave you unsettled.
You can watch High Life on Amazon Prime here.
