In 2016, director Ben Wheatley adapted the classic J.G. Ballard novel High Rise into the first big screen adaptation. Set in a posh 1970s London apartment block, the story revolves around a new tenant who watches as the other dwellers struggle and fight for supremacy in which he gets himself swept into. But does the film have something to say either about the time it’s set in or modern day England or does it dive head-first off the 40th floor? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Chris sign a lease to find out.
