Social norms melt down to the darkest depths in a self-contained mega apartment complex. J.G. Ballard is my favorite author and this is an excellent adaptation of one of his more extreme novels. I’m not one to re-watch more recent movies but I’ve seen High Rise at least three times. It’s almost perfect and checks all the boxes. Watch this immediately and then check out all the other work by director Ben Wheatley.
