The work of author J.G. Ballard is as perfectly suited to British director Ben Wheatley (Sightseers) as it was to David Cronenberg with Crash. Tom Hiddleston plays a doctor who moves into a futuristic apartment block and is quickly caught up in a civil war between the eccentric residents, which degenerates into anarchy, depravity and madness. The ’70s aesthetic evokes Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange and the tone is pure Terry Gilliam, with Wheatley adding his own brand of acerbic black humour to the breakdown of social order, which won’t be to all tastes.
