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.

Baffling, non-linear to the point of near-schizophrenia, and despite all of the computer technology, sadly resistant to any kind of production design you could call innovative.
The scope of its ambition is cleverly reined in by the low-key presentation, its more salacious potential muted down to an insistent threatening hum, like the background radiation of Stuart Staples' score.
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.
It's a drastic shift from Let the Sunshine In (2017), and it is absolutely brilliant.
High Life is a sordid meditation that unites and questions the futility of reflecting on the human being outside the Earth. [Full Review in Spanish]
The film ventures somewhere new, cloudy, revolutionary and without a doubt, fascinating. [Full Review in Spanish]
A final shot as purely formal as a straight line... [is] the triumph of mystery in a film so devoted to exploring the limits, or possibilities, of a concept as oblique and at the same time as simple as "life" [Full review in Spanish]
First film of the genre created by a filmmaker who moved the language of horror films to the purely sensory and primitive. [Full Review in Spanish]
Faced with the Manichaeism of other fictions that looked towards the stars with hope or fear, [director] Claire Denis extracts pure human essence from them. [Full review in Spanish]
