Steelbook artwork design by Chris Thornley
Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston, The Night Manager) feels like he’s made it - he’s moved into a luxury high-rise, seeking soulless anonymity. However, the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone and it isn’t long before the veneer of civilisation begins to collapse, and darker human urges begin to surface, and Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. From acclaimed director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers), and based on the classic novel by J.G. Ballard, comes a unique and dazzling vision of a dystopian Britain on the brink of social meltdown.

Surprisingly good surrealistic Film with good actors, a strange story and nice score, it reminded me on the film Brazil. The steelbook artwork is very good, has saturated colors with a nice matte finish and no tacky-glue was used for the C-card. Highly recommended.

Wasn't sure what to expect with this one .. Ballard's books are not made for the screen. Shouldn't have worried, this was excellent. The seventies setting is perfect as it makes the high rise (of the title) seem ridiculously futuristic. The slow and subtle breakdown of the residents is handled extremely well, and while Tom Hiddleston is perfect in his role, it's Sienna Miller who stands out in her best performance to date. Highly recommended.
