Part of Shots in the Dark 2019Broadway's Crime, Mystery and Thriller Film FestivalA project originally developed by producer Jeremy Thomas with Nicolas Roeg scheduled to direct, based on James Ballard's classic sci-fi thriller novel (who Thomas knew and he produced David Cronenberg's adaptation of Ballard's CRASH) but it was never made. Nevertheless, Thomas kept the flame alive over a thirty-odd year period and it finally came to fruition under Ben Wheatley's direction. He delivers a visceral, startling and audacious take on fragmentation, tribalism and class injustice in a brilliantly retro, future world tower block environment.
