It’s not like the erstwhile Cedric Diggory has a long, storied history of immaculate grooming, but for some reason his recent press tour for High Life has taken me aback with his aesthetic. It’s so… undiggoryfied. I feel like we are at Defcon Slop.
Also, High Life — a movie for which Zadie Smith originally co-wrote the script, but dropped out because she and the director agreed on nothing — is described thusly by Wikipedia: “[A] group of criminals who are tricked into believing they will be freed if they participate in a mission to travel on a spaceship towards a black hole to find an alternate energy source, while being sexually experimented on by the scientists on board.” So… it’s NOT about the Champagne of Beers, then? Pass.
