A sometimes grating but earnest attempt to provoke "the conversation" about the world's inequalities.

"Fiercely relevant, it represents young South Africans with nuance - well the woke set anyway."

High Fantasy has a great concept, but it's unfortunately poorly executed and often exhausting. It's frustrating to see a film this inventive and this willing to dive into these arguments lose itself along the way.

High Fantasy is an engaging film which makes good use of its short 71-minute runtime for a fast-paced yet very full narrative.

High Fantasy is successful in highlighting that there are a major social issues South Africa still needs to deal with ... Sadly, it doesn't succeed in carrying that conversation very far itself.

High Fantasy is an inventive and entertaining South African feature that cleverly yokes heavy subject matter to an agile DIY aesthetic.
