Ballardian (rhymes with Guardian) is a defined in the Collins English Dictionary as "resembling or suggestive of the conditions described in J. G. Ballard's novels and stories, especially dystopian modernity, bleak man-made landscapes and the psychological effects of technological, social or environmental developments". Obviously High Rise is by definition Ballardian, but it didn't stop Dr K using it the week that film came out (18th March 2016).
