“For all its inconveniences Laing was pleased with life in the High Rise”. The opening line, told 3 months after the beginning of the story, describing a life filled with chaos and social divides. Laing (Tom Hiddleston) moves into a tower of luxury apartments. Set in a parallel version of the 1970s, High Rise looks at the past, told in a present that looks at the future. It’s a utopian set of apartments at first glance: a swimming pool, a gym on floor 20, tennis courts, squash courts, and many more leisure facilities. The families live at the bottom, the rich at the top and on his penthouse looking over the ‘utopia’ he has created, the Architect.
After moving in, Laing soon becomes part of the scheme of things, yet always stands out (a man supported by the super rich, but friends with the families at the very bottom). Although, very quickly the peaceful utopian building turns against its inhabitants. Power cuts affect the floors at the bottom, and then spreads to the top; food becomes moldy in the supermarket; the swimming pool becomes home to a case of rage; a man jumps from the balcony of his apartment and then the supplies run out completely. The “High Rise” is now a pocket of a dystopian society, one where the middle classes fight against the upper middle classes and again to the super rich.
Acclaimed director Ben Wheatly tells an adaption of a classic novel which turns from a peaceful society to a strange and twisted tale of anger, greed and violence. Its a film that divides even my own opinion, and the opinion of many critics. Still, I cannot tell what my feeling to it is, that I can’t simply put into a rating of one-five stars as I would normally. The affect of High Rise cannot be put into a few paragraphs, it is as devise in my opinion of it as the building in which it portrays a story of division.
Toby looks into his kaleidoscope in which he says he can see the future. With brilliant direction, performances and screenplay, High Rise shows the violent and eerie future which Toby can see.

Noah. I am 13 years old and I am writing all the film and TV reviews that you will see on this page. I love films. I love them because how they take you into a completely different world to your own. Films take you on an emotional journey, whether they make you cry or laugh films are wonderful. Even the terrible ones make you laugh, because they are so terrible. Films have the ability to show us other worlds and show us how the world that we live in is changing. https://myscreennotebook.wordpress.com/
