It's very disturbing, but utterly compelling.

It's so refreshing to see a medium budget movie that doesn't fix itself to just one meaning, but functions as a kind of blank template to pin one's own feelings on.
September 26, 2019
There's some semblance of a plot, but it's style over substance. Too many bodily fluids and scatological instances for my taste.

High Life is a captivating cinematic achievement, a movie that portrays with sensual delight the compassion and horror of human emotions. A impressive film from an impressive filmmaker. [Full review in Spanish]

High Life is willing to stare into the hopeless void and discern a particle of optimism.

September 16, 2019
Nevertheless a fascinating, worthy effort from one of our most revered auteurs, High Life is a space oddity worth seeing in spite of its more alienating elements.
September 12, 2019
It's true there is a compelling chilliness to the story and, like the best space dramas, it sometimes offers up more questions than answers, but there's an overwhelming feeling of ennui and languidness... that more than slightly frustrates.

You really need to see High Life to take in the mix of despair and violence, set against the dream-like, poetic voyage. [Claire] Denis once again confounds with her vision.

September 11, 2019
High Life does invoke a variety of emotions that makes it stand out from its peers, but goes too far in the repulsive direction that will alienate viewers and is a muddled narrative when not in the strong screen presence of star Robert Pattinson.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
September 10, 2019
High Life is richly layered, atmospheric, and as creepy as poison ivy winding its way around your leg.
September 6, 2019
High Life works as a great metaphor for [our contemporary] dilemmas. [Full Review in Spanish]

High Life is a constant invitation to reflect on the sexual behavior of the human being with the aesthetic elements that characterize Claire Denis. [Full Review in Spanish]

August 30, 2019
It is a mosaic narrative of times and faces of disquietude that plunges us into a ritual nihilism, which disorient us in the middle of an accurate, powerful, rough and tempered visual narrative. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 28, 2019
Denis creates a trip to space related to the mystical journey of Stanley Kubrick, but that is autonomous in the visual with its unexpected minimalism. [Full Review in Spanish]
