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.

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 ...

The Best Films of 2010s (50 movies items)

" Jonathan Glazer has done it. I believe no other filmmaker has ever handled the theme of otherness as perfectly as Glazer in Under the Skin. Faber's novel gives the perfect premise, but Glazer is the visionary master in this medium. The horrors of nothingness, the search of the meaning of oneself: How is it to see people from the eyes of the Other? How does the other see itself? Here starts the journey for acceptance and self-discovery. From the foggy Lowlands to the dampest void, this film al"

"Under the Skin’s extraterrestrial seductress, Laura (Scarlett Johansson), shrinks in stature as the film progresses, from an indomitable, inviolable man-eating ghoul to an increasingly fragile woman suffering from the psychic trauma wreaked by her own weaponized sexuality. It’s a heartbreaking process to witness, one that flips a sleek, mysterious sci-fi thriller into a singular melodrama focused on the unlikeliest of protagonists. Establishing an atmosphere in which each new intrusion of fe"
