Sight & Sound: the June 2019: HIGH LIFE - Claire Denis - Robert Pattinson

Sight & Sound: the June 2019 issue - Brand New Condition

High Life stars Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche among a motley ensemble of death-row prisoners sent on a one-way voyage to a distant galaxy to harvest energy from black holes. As escalating tensions and isolation take their toll, the crew members are forced to confront the most primal questions of existence. As ever with Denis, the images are hypnotically riveting, the mood unsettling and strange, the structure elliptical and time-bending. Well into her seventies, this most adventurous of directors is still resisting categorisation and taking risks. She spoke to Pamela Hutchinson about scripts, sets, stars and sci-fi.
