Under the Skin (108 mins)
The icily brilliant Scarlett Johansson stars as an alien predator scouring Scotland's streets for human prey, in Jonathan Glazer’s astonishing amalgam of fantasy and reality. Mixing mind-bending visuals and hallucinatory sound design with an unexpected naturalism, Glazer returns to the screens after a nine-year absence in audacious style, utilising guerrilla filmmaking tactics to capture Glasgow and its unsuspecting inhabitants with intimate realism.
Winner of numerous critical accolades since its UK premiere at London Film Festival 2013, Under the Skin works as both a genre piece rooted in sci-fi traditions and as a subcutaneously affecting drama documenting an outsider’s perspective on a new world. An instant cult classic.
