Under the Skin


Under the Skin
This film will not appeal to everyone, as it is slow-moving and designed to make you think. The plotline concerns an alien who assumes the form of an alluring female and prowls the streets of Scotland, leading lonely and unsuspecting men to their doom. However as she goes from victim to victim, she starts to change and to realise things about herself. Note that there is quite a bit of nudity, especially full-frontal male nudity.

106 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Nudity).
Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller, On the art circuit

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThose who fall under Glazer's spell will applaud Under the Skin as visionary. Those who don't will find it dull, opaque, and largely a waste of time.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconJohansson is phenomenal in every sense of the word. She joins Glazer in creating a brave experiment in cinema that richly rewards the demands it makes. The result is an amazement, a film of beauty and shocking gravity.
