Under the Skin. 2013. Great Britain/USA/Switzerland. Directed by Jonathan Glazer. Screenplay by Glazer, Walter Campbell, based on the novel by Michel Faber. With Scarlett Johannson, Jeremy McWilliams, Lynsey Taylor Mackay. Digital projection. 108 min.
An irresistible and intoxicating Scarlet Johannson is the femme fatale who prowls the desolate Scottish highlands and nocturnal streets of Glasgow in search of lonely men to pick up—and do in. Jonathan Glazer’s film more than lives up to its billing, with a hypnotic electronic soundscape by Mica Levi and chillingly precise, spare cinematography by Daniel Landin. Courtesy of A24.
