Critic Reviews for High Life
The plot gets twisted but the direction by Yates never does. He finds the humour in a desperate situation. It's hard to hate or even despise Dick and his stooges, because you can sense how needy they are.
This witty film wins us over with its likeable-loser characters and twisty plot. It also has an intriguingly serious edge
So, finally, deciding whether or not to see this movie boils down to one simple thing. If you didn't see it on stage, chances are you'll have a good-enough time.
Audience Reviews for High Life
Once again I notice the low rating from some people, but I personally really enjoyed this movie. I admit that I am a Tim Olyphant fan, so maybe I am a little biased. I dont think that is the case, though. I truly got a kick out of this movie. It is a black comedy, of sorts, so that makes me like it even more. All in all good flick.
Probably the most unique role I've seen Timothy Olyphant do, and it worked pretty well. Not exactly a laugh-a-minute comedy, but it generally works as a heist gone wrong dramedy, appropriately set in the early 80s. At 80 minutes it never amounts to much, but I appreciated most of the dark sense of humor, and what seems to be a fairly realistic depiction of how addicts think.
Brilliant failed heist movie. Ex con Olyphant and his buddies try to work out a violence free hijacking which fails miserably in every way. Superb story, great acting and the sense of humour made me laugh throughout.
