A group of death-row inmates (including Robert Pattinson, Andre 3000 and Mia Goth) drifts through the cosmos in a lonely spacecraft. But while the ship is heading to the galaxy’s closest black hole, Dibs, a doctor played by Juliette Binoche and basically the authority figure aboard, sets up a system of regular sperm donations and artificial inseminations. Freely distorting the conceptions of what an outer-space epic should be, Claire Denis stages an intense, elliptical composition that could be described as an ‘erotically apocalyptic space odyssey’.
