Critic Consensus: High Life is as visually arresting as it is challenging, confounding, and ultimately rewarding - which is to say it's everything film fans expect from director Claire Denis.

Critic Reviews for High Life
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.
Even when Denis preps us to have a chuckle, she is quick to remind us that we're not going to get a campy cult classic out of her. Her concerns here are not to be taken lightly, and laughter must inevitably give way to serious contemplation.
