Before He Was Batman!

One of this year's weirdest and best films is out for home viewing today -- Claire Denis' High Life, starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche, has just hit whatever the hell we're calling home video now, and I recommend you catch it if you haven't yet. Here is my review from the New York Film Festival last fall, where I said, and I quote...

"Denis drops her characters at the edge of oblivion, as go we all, and pokes at 'em stick-like. Science like. What madness lay where the spear pierces the pitch black veil? Dirt and molecules, birth canals a Milky Way wide. We can walk the rim like acrobats, we can build rocket-boxes or adorable babies that extend our infinitesimal grasps a mite's length more than infinitesimal. But space, a sparkling tar, will swallow us all. Bring on the fuck boxes!"
