A comedic heist movie from the flip-side of the '80s consumer dream. It's 1983, and petty-thief Dick gets a surprise visit from his unhinged former cellmate, Bug. When Bug gets Dick fired from his first straight job, Dick devises the perfect plan for some much needed, fast cash. The problem is, his crew is so rife with loathing that just getting to the bank's front door will take a miracle as the plan starts to unravel before Dick's eyes.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"High Life is filled with surprising, artful flourishes."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"So, finally, deciding whether or not to see this movie boils down to one simple thing. If you didn't see it on stage, chances are you'll have a good-enough time."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"The plot gets twisted but the direction by Yates never does. He finds the humour in a desperate situation. It's hard to hate or even despise Dick and his stooges, because you can sense how needy they are."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"This witty film wins us over with its likeable-loser characters and twisty plot. It also has an intriguingly serious edge"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
