FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
High Life is an ambitious arthouse sci-fi that will divide fans of the genre. While it has a strong cast, an interesting premise, thoughtful themes and scenic cinematography, the messy script, story structure, dialogue and uncomfortable tone make this sci-fi one that is lost in space. It is certainly an acquired taste and one that I could pass on.
★★★★★½☆☆☆☆ 5.5/10 – Consider
