Under the Skin (2013)
An aesthetic piece of art "not for all"
This is a contradictory movie, not all will like it and someone will find it disturbing. It is almost not related to a book prototype and probably should be considered as a separate work, not an adaptation. But nevertheless it is quite significant in a few ways.
"Under the Skin" is a philosophical parable that is open to the different interpretations and allows viewers to think by them self. In a way it gives a look on our society from outside, from the view of an alien. It is combined with a brilliant visual imagery that accompanied by the same great musical score. Image is excellent both due to the cinematography and Scarlett Johansson's performance. So I'll consider it as an aesthetic piece of art "not for all". If you like an European intellectual "art house", like Bergman or Trier, then maybe you will like it. But an average consumer of the movies with Scarlett Johansson can be shocked in a bad way here (and big respect to her for acting in so various cinema).
