The ending of High Life arrives almost too suddenly, but that's only incentive to seek out a second, third and fourth viewing as soon as humanly possible.

In terms of mood, cosmetics, and rhythm, it's a worthy addition to the great filmmaker's canon.

"High Life" can be brutal and breathtakingly perverse as only a Denis film can be. But perhaps even more disturbingly, that brutality is undergirded by real warmth and tenderness...

High Life is a pensive and profound study of human life on the brink of the apocalypse.

The director's ardent fans will likely find much to admire here - especially the fact that the 72-year-old Denis remains a fearless filmmaker who, in her own way, has gone this time where no man (or woman) has gone before.
