UNDER THE SKIN

Directed by Jonathan Glazer

After watching this film, I’m convinced that Jonathan Glazer is an alien. Or a genius. Under The Skin is pure voyeurism: except we’re get a glimpse of ourselves rather than other people. Glazer exposes the human as the creature of toxic superficial desires, and provides us with some of the most stark imagery of the year. Entrancing. The film was made even better as the credits rolled, as I heard a woman in the audience rant about “how ugly Scarlett Johansson was in the film”. The irony was relentless.
