A sensuous, challenging treat from Claire Denis. A crew of prisoners, adrift in deep space on a mission headed towards the oblivion or salvation of a black hole. Monte (Robert Pattinson) tends to his baby daughter, away from the questionable experiments of scientist Dibs (Juliette Binoche).
Bringing her genuine vision to science fiction, director Claire Denis loses none of the visceral intensity of her past work and gains many charismatic performers (including Mia Goth and André 3000). Maintaining the existential questions that have fired her oeuvre and transposing them onto a galactic canvas, this is truly ambitious, eye-opening cinema.
