The brutalism begins with the architecture and extends all the way down to the residents in Ben Wheatleys High-Rise, a flashy adaptation of J.G. Ballards towering 1975 social critique. What began as a self-contained allegory on open class warfare becomes a showcase for stylistic anarchy, wherein the ensuing orgy of sex and violence serves to justify a near-total breakdown of cinematic form. Those with an appetite for aberrant creative visions make High-Rise a hot cult property, though this unruly black comedy doesnt work on any of the levels mainstream audiences expect.
