High Life delivers the kind of DIY sci-fi you'd expect from a bona fide arthouse film. Contrived acting, slow pacing and a level of vagueness that allows for various interpretations make this a rather predictable arthouse affair that merely abuses its genre influences. There is definitely potential here, but Denis' execution simply isn't good enough.
