High Fantasy (2017)
Critic Reviews for High Fantasy
A sometimes grating but earnest attempt to provoke "the conversation" about the world's inequalities.
High Fantasy is an inventive and entertaining South African feature that cleverly yokes heavy subject matter to an agile DIY aesthetic.
It's hard to unpack any of those moments individually, but the strength of the film is that it's willing to push past the homilies we've all been taught about diversity and cooperation and focus on the messy politics and human feelings underneath.
High Fantasy's unassuming, yet piercing examination of race, class and gender embeds Bass firmly in the pantheon of an exciting new wave of South African filmmaking characterized by introspective directors who are digging deep.
"High Fantasy" is a movie for the woke set in 2017; it's about the exploration of the beliefs we espouse on the surface, art that bores beneath that surface to mine its characters' true feelings. It's therefore uncomfortable to watch, but that's natural.
