Seen: At the Kendall Square Landmark Cinema in Cambridge.
Gradually paced and exquisitely shot, Under the Skin is a strange, dark, and thoughtful story about an alien who hunts unsuspecting single men in Scotland. Johansson is delightfully off-putting in the main role, impressively communicating a sense of the inhuman, aided by a tense, ethereal score and memorable visuals. It’s a little like The Man Who Fell to Earth but with less talking. I wrote a full review of the film for 366 Weird Movies, please head over there and check it out!by
