Under the Skin (2013)

Under the Skin is psychedelic. The dark science fiction thriller story is eerie, sexual, graphic and strange overall. The film’s foggy Scottish Highlands and creepy score congeal into an art-like film. Sharp editing and tone-perfect cinematography also add to the experience. Other aspects of the production that makes it so artistic are the many non-actor characters; unscripted conversations; and the general alien perspective of Scarlett Johansson’s character which is mysteriously blunt. Her womanly character is constantly unexplained yet does transform from seductive to seduced (by oneself). The film is fully art-house because understanding is relative and subjective. Under the Skin will undoubtedly get under your skin on way or another.
