High Rise (R)

Stylish, utterly bonkers and devilishly funny riff on J. G. Ballard’s novel about distilled class conflict  in a skyscraper/gated community/social microcosm.

Jeremy Irons as mad scientist/property developer/idealist/sociopathic dictator, soundtracked by Portishead doing down-tempo Abba.

Sienna Miller attempts to scale the tower as life for the residents begins to run out of control.

Delirious fable of Thatcherite Britain or catalogue of post-capitalist collapse? Fantastic.
