Synopsis 5 stars out of 5 -- Glazer has turned in what could well be the most beguiling, inventive, atmospheric and unnerving Brit-pic of the year.Much of this is fascinating, as far as it goes, but it wouldn't go as far as it does into drama were it not for Ms. Johansson's wonderfully strange performance.Watching this film feels like a genesis moment -- of sci-fi fable, of filmmaking, of performance -- with all the ambiguity and excitement that implies.4 stars out of 4 -- This is what we talk about when we talk about film as art.UNDER THE SKIN lets its nightmarish imagery do the talking, forgoing explanation in favor of total sensory immersion. -- Grade: A-4 stars out of 4 -- UNDER THE SKIN is hideously beautiful. Its life force is overwhelming.3.5 stars out of 4 -- The result is an amazement, a film of beauty and shocking gravity.UNDER THE SKIN is not only genuinely experimental but feels authentically alien...Scarlett Johansson as an extraterrestrial femme fatale cruising the streets of Glasgow in Jonathan Glazer’s cerebral sci-fi horror fantasy UNDER THE SKIN is an indelible personification of predatory allure.It’s perhaps best to consider Glazer’s film to be an avant garde midnight movie, using familiar genre conventions to explore conceptual philosophical ideas.An alien assumes the form of an alluring female (Scarlett Johansson) and prowls the streets of Scotland, leading lonely and unsuspecting men to their doom in director Jonathan Glazer's surreal adaptation of Michel Faber's genre-bending novel of the same name.
