Ben Wheatley is a odd one for me, i respect the fuck out of him, but his films i am not huge on. Down Terrace is a decent film but it seems ordinary, Kill List is easily his best, Sighseers I wanted to love as the trailers sold me, but ultimately left me unfulfilled. High Rise is his best looking no doubt, but the script was jumbled, and i get that it was supposed to be but the weirdness felt messy. I should love a film like this, it felt like 60s New Wave but just because something is surreal doesn't make it good. In fact this was one of the worse pieces of film watching i have had. I respect the ambition & weirdness but i did not like this flick at all.
