**A dystopian-thriller-drama in a retro effect.**
A new British dystopian-drama sets in a single 40 storey building revolving around the people who resides there. It was based on the novel of the same name which has a great cast and a decently made film. But it is kind of a 50-50 to me, mostly I enjoyed with a little disappointment in some parts. First of all I did not know anything about the film, so surprised with its development, especially when it reached its midway I realised the theme. The setting was great, and well performed by all, particularly the Tom Hiddleton which is very rare to see him in a lead role.
It was the story of a doctor who moved to his new residency in a high-rise tower and tries to blend in with the others. But as the world is falling apart by the collapse of the society and civilisation, his tower block as well affected very seriously of all kinds of supplies where he confronts various threats from its people. The remaining story concentrates where it is going to end and how with some high and low moments.
Occasionally, the narration takes us outside the building, but it does not stay there long enough. At present there are many dystopian films are made, especially for teens, so this is really good and gives the 70s and 80s kind of effect, despite technologically it resembles the current world. Not many people who watched it liked it, so did I. It was not that bad, but the story was not appealing to the 2016 audience, where so many hi-tech films hitting the screen in dystopian theme. From that perspective, it is good we have here a different kind, but not enough. It would have become one of the classic cult if it was made in the 80s or should have been updated thoroughly for making it today.
I think I must be too stupid to appreciate it fully.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Too incoherent to convey a clear message
Is High-Rise an anti-capitalist manifesto, meant to show the evil of inequality? Is it an attack on the British class society? Is it meant to show how modern architecture alienates people from each other? Or is it just a succession of weird scenes, giving the director the opportunity to show off? There’s something to say for all of the above, but I’m inclined towards the last. The film really is too incoherent to convey a clear message or idea. The metaphor of a huge high-rise building to symbolize society at large is interesting, but could have been better expressed. As it is now, the metaphor gets mostly lost in an avalanche of weird, decadent or shocking scenes. As a viewer, you keep waiting for the story to become clear, but it never really happens.
This is even more annoying because the film is much too long, and already from the start it’s clear how it ends because the whole story is one large flash back. The result is zero suspense and maximum weariness.
This movie made no sense. Take Snowpiercer as an example. In that movie, the whole of society lived on that train, so initially, the lower class people had no choice but to deal with the conditions. In High-Rise, the planet is still completely habitable and society is functioning just as it is now. So why in the hell does this one apartment building turn into a post apocalyptic nightmare just because of minor inconveniences? Why are people eating dogs because the grocery store inside the building has been ransacked? Just go to a normal store! I understand the movies metaphors for people’s desire for “status,” but the story is such an incoherent mess that the moment to moment scenes and lack of any discernable character motivations make the entire thing a long unsatisfying slog.
