About Under The Skin
From the director of Sexy Beast and Birth comes a film that has attracted some critical acclaim, but was also booed at Cannes and branded a nonsensical mess. It combines Glazer's signature lurid, hypnotic visuals with a strong central performance from Scarlett Johansson. She plays an alien who arrives in Glasgow on a mysterious and deadly quest. Strikingly beautiful and almost mute as she roams the streets and nightclubs looking for men, our anti-heroine is coolly bemused by the hustle and bustle of human life. She is careful to pick victims who won't be missed by wives or family and the men willingly clamber into her van, lured by the promise of sex and undisturbed by her lack of emotion. But a grisly fate awaits them.
