The High-Rise SteelBook® edition deserves artwork that captures the bold aesthetic and design of the film. Designed by the graphic designer Chris Thornley a.k.a Raid71 for Vice Press, Raid71 utilised a 70s colour palette in the design to reflect the era of the film.
By incorporating architecture and bold solid lines in the artwork, the main character’s trip through chaos and drama can be seen unfolding within the building on his way down.
This SteelBook® case has been treated with a matte varnish, which gives it a smooth surface and has been used to accentuate the lines and graphic details created in the artwork.
Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston, The Night Manager) feels like he has made it – he has moved into a luxury high-rise, seeking soulless anonymity. However, the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone and it isn’t long before the veneer of civilisation begins to collapse, and darker human urges begin to surface, and Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building.
From acclaimed director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers), and based on the classic novel by J.G. Ballard, comes a unique and dazzling vision of a dystopian Britain on the brink of social meltdown.
