The Embattled Psychedelic Sci-Fi Horror Is On the Verge Of Oblivion Thanks To Streaming

Robert Pattinson‘s career has improved since he stopped being “the guy from Twilight” and became “the Batman from The Batman.” His stock in the business is now higher than it has been since his days as a glittering vampire. Does this imply that he will give up his side job as a strangely dedicated character actor? Let’s hope not, because it’s movies like High Lifethat helped shape his post-Cullen reputation in the first place.

It would be misleading to describe High Life as unusual, given that it is the English-language debut of renowned filmmaker Claire Denis. While it can be broadly characterized as a psychological sci-fi horror, that barely even scratches the surface of a narrative that thrives in existential anguish and purposefully seeks to perplex the audience.

In reality, while a Certified Fresh Rotten Tomatoes score of 82 percent would indicate that Denis had delivered a truly renowned crowd-pleaser, a 42 percent user rating indicates that audiences were half as thrilled by what they saw as critics. In the end, High Life bombed at the box office regardless, but it’s now resurging on streaming.

In the movie High Life, Pattinson stars as a father and survivor of a reproductive experiment that sent a band of criminals into the deepest reaches of space in the name of science, but he finds himself among the last remaining survivors (alongside his baby daughter) as the ship hurtles towards a black hole that spells certain doom.
