Bad reputation and ideas makes bad result

OJT, IMDb
14 February 2014
  • Summary: How I love to discover hidden little gems like this dark comedy about a bunch if criminals. High on dope and low on IQ, high on aims but low on life, this film by Canadian director Gary Yates succeeds in being his most interesting so far.

Surprising Dark Horse--Or Should That be a Pink Horse??

moderniste, IMDb
20 March 2012
  • Summary: Many other reviews have covered the excellence of the stoned/junked-out humour and the overall kind of lackadaisical mood of entropy: everything going to a chaotic, baroque hell. What I really loved in this little movie was the attention to detail.

  • Summary: What an unexpected Great Movie! Having come across this movie and noticing Timothy Olyphant in the cast, I decided to watch. Another fantastic movie that did not get press. Shameful. Excellent acting. Each character was well crafted, quirky and emotive. Timothy Olyphant rocked as Dick.

Amusing examination of junkie Darwinism

MBunge, IMDb
12 July 2011
  • Summary: After I watched this film, I checked out the trailer for it on the DVD. The trailer makes High Life look as though this is some sort of action thriller. What it really is, however, is a low wattage, dark comedy about 4 junkies on various stages of the junkie evolutionary scale that succeeds by never...

Another unrecognized gem!

John Jennings, IMDb
5 June 2011
  • Summary: Caught this on Showtime, and it struck me as a real gem flying low under the radar. Though obviously not big budget, it held my interest and really worked. Excellent script, acting, etc. (For some reason it reminded me of Dustin Hoffman's "Straight Time".

Hilarious!

Suzanne Licht (slich@inorbit.com), IMDb
27 April 2011
  • Summary: The only criticism of this movie, is that it left me wanting MORE. It is one of the most darkly hilarious drug user movies I have ever seen, and each character was unique and quirky. The dialog, rhythm and strange twists and turns of the plot were highly entertaining.

My 314th Review: One of the better crime comedies around

intelearts, IMDb
12 February 2010
  • Summary: This is low down fun. It has a very well-scripted, plotted, and thought through feel to it and there really are worse ways to send your time. It reminded us a lot of Australian cinema, where losers just keep on losing but just more and more outrageously, and it is a film that makes you laugh mostly...

A Fun Ride!

nofo04, IMDb
16 September 2009
  • Summary: I saw High Life last night at the Toronto International Film Festival. As caper movies go, it was one of the better ones I've seen. The real focus in on the four hapless criminals, who are all interesting, multi- faceted (and often amusing) characters.
