A distinctive retelling of Ballard's visionary dystopia told in Wheatley's unique cinematic voice.


  1. Now I'm torn as to whether to read the book first. Looking forward to some proper brutalism in this

    1. From my memory of the book, Wheatley's film is quite different - the core elements are there but as Al says above, it's a distinctive take on the source material. Ballard's is more serious, and more brutal in its satire IMO, but Wheatley ekes out a quirky humour and the film oozes style. Still the best thing I've seen at LFF so far.

      I wouldn't feel you have to read it before watching the film, but equally, I don't think it hurts.
