High Rise has an interesting poster

This is a really clever poster! I like the idea and hope that the film also shares this wit when it’s released. If anything this movie succeeds in making me look at it in more than just a passing glance to see the not so secret reflection.


1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the lifts fail but the party goes on. People are the problem. Booze is the currency. Sex is the panacea. Only much later, as he sits on his balcony eating the architect’s dog, does Dr. Robert Laing finally feel at home.

Luke has been talking to me about this Ben Wheatley guy and why I should be excited. I haven’t seen any of his films but Luke is planning on reviewing them all in anticipation of this new films’ release. The latest film from this up and coming directer has assembled a pretty interesting cast with Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss.
