Exceptional film. Challenges audiences on every level. The deliberate movement of the narrative might make or break someone on the fence between loving this and hating it. The imagery is compelling and the sense of dread is palpable, cold, yet strangely alluring, keeping you interested in the protagonists' plight. Something worth less than two hours of your time, if only to endure the experience a... read more

Scarlett Johansson is hot and this role fits her perfectly. I have been wanting to see this not only for her and her assets, but it looks interesting and visually stunning. The first four minutes were hard to sit through because literally nothing happens all you hear is a voice and see a strange visual that is unidentifiable. The music is interesting and unique. I am sure if the scenes weren't so ... read more

After almost 10 years, Jonathan Glazer was finally coming up with a new directing effort so I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, it turned out to be a really tough watch and I'm not surprised that it didn't get much love when it was released, even though some called it one of the best movies of the year,  but something similar already happened with 'Birth', his previous movie. The point... read more

Description: In Scotland, a motorcyclist retrieves a young woman's body from the side of a road and places her in the back of a van. In a featureless white void, a naked woman strips the woman and dons her clothes. The woman drives the van around Scotland, picking up men on the street. She brings them to her apartment — a black, featureless void — where the men follow her into darkness and find themselves submerged in an abyss of liquid. Their bodies vanish, leaving empty skins behind, and their innards are sucked away into a distant red light. Visit film website: [Link removed - login to see] Under the Skin on Facebook: [Link ...

2018: Films I've Watched in February (24 movies items)

"First Watched 2/7/2018 Now I enjoyed this film but I fully understand why people wouldn't like it or have issues with it. It definitely has flaws the most glaring one being how it decides to set up and present the story. Now yes films are usually stronger when they follow the motto show don't tell certainly however, this film decides not to tell us much of anything and that is a double edge sword to the final product. That being said I kinda enjoyed piecing together what was going on and how t"

“Cliff's Notes

This is one of those movies that is hard to understand how it ends up actually getting made. It's one of those that goes over the top in trying to be "different" and "artsy". There was virtually no plot, no MacGuffin, nearly no dialog. And nothing is ever really explained. The audience is left almost entirely in the dark essentially the entire time, and almost none of the questions ever get answered.

At least David Lynch and Stanely Kubrick offer compelling scenes to get lost in, even if the viewer doesn't understand fully what's going on, or know what they watched by the end of the film.

This was like an immitation of them, but without the good stuff they bring. Every scene was way too long and slowly paced. In fact, the entire movie could have ” read more

My Top 10 Least Favourite Movies of 2014 (10 movies items)

"This movie, right from the first minute, seems like it's trying desperately to be a Stanley Kubrick film, with a very slow pace and a vague, visual-fuelled narrative. But a sci-fi movie of this nature doesn't lend itself well at all to that approach; it really needs to be cohesive. As a result, it leaves tonnes of questions unanswered. Just what is that liquid she traps men in? Who is that guy working with her? Why does she even need men's skins in the first place? None of this is ever explained"

"First viewing - Feb. 23rd For some reason I was under the impression I should check this out, and now I'm wishing I would have gone on ignoring the existence of Under the Skin. I'll concede that from an artistic standpoint there's a lot here to admire. The visuals are outstanding at times, and I dug the hidden camera approach to capturing most of the scenes. Unfortunately once you get beyond the style of the film there's not much substance elsewhere. The dialogue is minimal, and what little dia"

"A Man Who Fell to Earth for millennials, Jonathan Glazer's cryptic tale of an extraterrestrial femme fatale who discovers her inner human being is, in the truest sense of the word, awesome. Lots of movies have tried to channel that old Seventies sci-fi feeling, but Glazer's visually sumptuous, genuinely unnerving movie is one of the few that feels as if it actually came from that fertile era of space oddities. There's a sense of exploration in its elliptical storytelling that feels light years a"

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

"5 March. Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin pays tribute to that brand of sci-fi that caters more to the senses rather than the mind. Scarlett Johansson is a mysterious woman that drives around Scotland picking up males for their skin, and the movie features the actress in several nude scenes, which is as much the topic of discussion as is the movie's concept."
