High Life [2018]

“At 99% the speed of light, the entire sky converged before our eyes.”

Real slow burner of a film with some big names including Juliette Binoche, Robert Pattinson, André 3000 & Mia Goth. Visually stellar. At times, complex meshing of past, present and future. Really should have come with a trigger warning as there were multiple scenes of r*pe. I struggled to maintain focus throughout; the latter third before the conclusion felt a little empty. In a world of epic space films, this was a welcome change but due to how slow it is, probs not a film for everyone.

Spiderhead [2022]

“B-6. It doesn’t make you happy or hungry or horny.
It makes you do as you’re told.”

I liked how this film inadvertently highlighted the lack of human rights attributed to people placed in jail through the actions of the unhinged, unethical scientist played by Chris Hemsworth, though I doubt the intention was to be so topical. Unfortunately I just felt like I knew exactly what was gonna happen, so I wouldn’t watch it again.
