Highrise

A doctor (Tom Hiddleston) moves into a London skyscraper where rising tensions and class warfare lead to anarchy

We walked in.. only knowing a little..

We left stunned.

This has the mix of elements and an amazing cast, that should make for a cult classic.

There are at least 3 movies in one..

The visuals are stunning.

The performances will take you by surprise.

The story has twists.

The end.. well not to the tastes of many.

Highlights: Jeremy Irons.. outstandingly believable and the visual look of the high rise.

  • Overall: 8/10
  • Story: 7/10
  • Acting: 9/10
  • Score: 8/10
  • Visual: 9/10

 

Ok.. so now for the spoilers. by the end.. there is truly shocking elements. Civilisation collapses. There is violence and death. This is not the movie for the kids on a Saturday night.

We left shaken and thoughtful.

It will stay with us.

This is what movie making was before the elements of VFX.. that cater to the masses.

I think the similarities between the poster for this and Clockwork Orange may tell you all you need to..
