    Ben Wheatley went high-concept in his adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s High-Rise, following the residents of an all-inclusive luxury building who turn to literal class warfare when the structure’s essential systems break down.

    Having excelled at conveying those heady themes, he and spouse Amy Jump – the writer and co-editor on each of his films – toss intellectualism aside in favor of pure entertainment in this joy ride.

    "Does James Ponsoldt make films about alcoholics?" is the new "Does a bear shit in the woods?"

    Not a bad first film, but it doesn't help that every character besides Nolte's is underwritten and poorly acted (including DeWitt). The major surprise, though, is how articulate Nolte is here compared to his current indecipherable polar bear self.

    An undocumented inspiration for "Before Sunrise"...well, to me at least. I wonder if Fairbanks and Blondell met up nine years later.
