Under the Skin
From visionary director Jonathan Glazer ("Sexy Beast," "Birth") comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial — or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber ("The Crimson Petal and the White"), "Under the Skin" examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.
HitFix Reviews and Ratings
A-Scarlett Johansson plays a mysterious predator in Jonathan Glazer's dark and beautiful 'Under The Skin,' one of the strangest movies so far this year, and one that is not easy to shake.
A-Jonathan Glazer's "Under the Skin" is an original piece of cinema that is gorgeous, mesmerizing, heartbreaking, frustrating and pretentious all at the same time.
