Incredibly special
15 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Containing a healthy dose of the abject, Under The Skin is a very special movie which in one moment can baulk your mind, and in the other play the tender notes. Johansson has gained immortality here. Kubrick would have been proud of the results, all the antique regions of the mind, the bits that respond to ritual, the old fears, the stuff you can't look at is here. As well as the depths of the moat, there's the heights of the spires. Incomprehensibility is part of the narrative's beauty, the glint that blinds and delights, and a reminder that confusion and fear are inextricably linked to happiness and revelation. If you have not seen this movie, prepare for awe.
