UN­DER THE SKIN ( MA15+)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES -

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.
