UNDER THE SKIN ( MA15+)
IT IS a Scarlett Johansson movie, but not as we know it. It is a sci- fi movie, but then again, it is not. It might be a private joke. Or it could be a public service announcement, warning of the dangers of getting picked up by Scar-Jo in an unmarked moving van.
Johansson plays a strange, solitary woman who spends her time prowling the roads of Scotland, luring men to an eerily enigmatic date with fate. Many viewers – especially those enthused by the news Johansson repeatedly misplaces her clothing – are going to find this too abrasively abstract for words.
Others prepared to extend the film both the respect and suspicion it truly deserves are going to be in for one of the most unique experiences of 2014.
Directed by Jonathan Glazer ( Sexy Beast ).
