Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 03/18/2016
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] Brit-film of singular vision, blackened wit and dog-toasting audacity, cooked with such brio that its flaws seem like acceptable casualties."
The Guardian - 03/20/2016
4 stars out of 5 -- "HIGH-RISE sees Wheatley coming into his own as a director in complete control of his environment..."
A.V. Club - 05/12/2016
"HIGH-RISE, a darkly funny adaptation by cult English director Ben Wheatley of the J.G. Ballard novel of the same title, preserves the book’s ’70s setting, steeping its vision of a toppling society in retro decadence..."
RogerEbert.com - 05/13/2016
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Wheatley is a smart, resourceful filmmaker who knows how to modulate his imagery."
Los Angeles Times - 05/11/2016
"[I]t’s the glorious spectacle of this prime real estate being trashed and torched that burns itself into the viewer's brain."
Rolling Stone - 05/12/2016
3 stars out of 4 -- "Wheatley puts his visuals into overdrive and stuns our senses. Just try to turn away."
New York Times - 05/12/2016
"The retro-futurist production design is gorgeously awful, the cast is awfully gorgeous, and the dystopian setting is explored with an appropriately Ballardian blend of suavity and aggression."
Boston Globe - 05/12/2016
"Wheatley renders this breakdown of civilization in jaunty montages of assaults, orgies, murders, and mounds of garbage, images backed by music ranging from Portishead to Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos."

Product Description:

Well-to-do doctor Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) moves into the 25th floor of an experimental high-rise apartment complex on the outskirts of London in 1975, attracted by the upper-class lifestyle promoted by its architect (Jeremy Irons). The building is secluded from the outside world and functions as its own autonomous community; in addition, it's organized by a rigid caste system, with the least wealthy residents situated on the lower floors. Laing befriends a documentary filmmaker (Luke Evans) who lives on the second floor, and soon becomes aware of the social inequities within the complex. As tensions between the tenants boil over, an all-out war erupts that divides the classes into violent tribes vying for the top floors. Ben Wheatley directed this wildly imaginative and chaotic adaptation of J.G. Ballard's 1975 novel, with Amy Jump serving as screenwriter. HIGH-RISE premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
