10. High-Rise

Ben Wheatley directs a ferocious adaptation of JG Ballard’s clinical sci-fi masterpiece. The film divided critics and audiences right down the middle. This dystopian tale, questions the role of architecture, specifically mega-scale high rises as a world of their own with no apparent connection to the city. Tom Hiddleston is awesomely cool and collected as Dr Robert Laing, who moves into a new Estuary tower block just as it begins to descend into complete social anarchy.
