From The Booth
Starring, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elizabeth Moss. “Some of my novels, like High-Rise, are terrorist novels in that they’re designed to deliberately provoke.”—JG Ballard. And with the posters reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, you should be ready for Ben Wheatley’s outrageous adaptation of Ballard’s provocative novel in which the residents of a stark high rise apartment mirror the top to bottom classes of the general society. From the cowering masses of (mostly) women and children in the lower levels, to the depraved orgies of sex and drugs in the penthouse, High-Rise pushes anything that resembles a boundary. Not since The Lobster have we offered a film so guaranteed to provoke, offend and inspire diverse reaction. Here’s to cinema that chooses to challenge.
