High-Rise. Director: Ben Wheatley Writer: Amy Jump, based on the novel by J.G. Ballard Actors: Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, Elizabeth Moss, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons. Ben Wheatley is one of best genre directors. His movie Kill List is still regarded as one of the best horror movies of the new century and
Sightseers is the third film by exciting new British talent Ben Wheatley, who is already establishing himself as a masterful director and possibly the new Shane Meadows. However, to give Wheatley the credit for this film would be doing a disservice to the real creators and talent, Steve Oram and Alice Lowe, who wrote and star in the film as oddball lovers Chris and Tina.
The new film from Ben Wheatley, the phenomenal director of Kill List and Down Terrance, it tells the story of two idiosyncratic (and probably a little disturbed) British holiday-makers whose visit to Yorkshire spirals into violence and bloodshed.
