HIGH RISE, d. Ben Wheatley (2015)

I'm a huge J.G Ballard fan, so I was delighted by High Rise, which brings so much from the page to the screen, including all those contradictions and frustrations that make Ballard's work so fascinating. For those that say the people in the story become savage too quickly, or that the ending is muddled and confusing I have this to say: you're right, now go back and read / re-read the book and see how accurate this adaptation is and how little those apparent issues matter.
