J.G. Ballard's High-Rise - The Movie

A very interesting take on visualizing J.G. Ballard's reliably prescient novel of 1975, worth revisiting particularly in the light of an imminent feature film of the project. This animation dwells not unreasonably on the building itself as the main protagonist. The text and silhouetted characters feel like parasites on the body of something implacably vast and indifferent. Curious that the book has not spawned unlimited dialog across all media over the decades since it was published but perhaps that is all, belatedly, about to change.
