Film Screening: "High Life" (Claire Denis, 2019, 113 min, France/Germany/UK/Poland/USA, Color, DCP) Monte (Robert Pattinson) and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The crew-death-row inmates led by a doctor (Juliette Binoche) with sinister motives-has vanished. The mystery deepens as the survivors hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole. It's a Claire Denis film: erotic, disturbing, philosophical, masterful. "At once a grand departure and the same film Denis has been making all her life, HIGH LIFE deals in a kind of metaphorical colonization, in the violence inherent in interpersonal relations between men and women, and in the perversity of (especially female) desire." -Jessica Kiang, Variety
