Claire Denis has been a force in French cinema for over 30 years, which makes it kind of interesting that her English-language debut, High Life, is only coming out this year. But better quality than speed any day: the fine folks who brought you movies like Paul Schrader’s First Reformed, Lady Bird, and HereditaryA24 – are bringing you High Life.

Break the laws of nature and you'll pay for it.

Starring Juliette Binoche as a mad scientist specializing in bodily fluids, and Robert Pattinson, Mia Goth, and André 3000 (née Benjamin) as inmates condemned to life in an intergalactic space prison, High Life does look to be a cannot miss spin on the space genre from a most interesting filmmaker, a la Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, with plenty more trippy erotic thriller elements, so perhaps more like Tarkovsky’s Solaris. We shall see.

High Life is in theaters April 2019. Enjoy the trailer below.
