The soundtrack compliments Johansson’s man hunter and her journey extremely well, but the direction and story were too obscure and drawn out for my liking. A divisive film just as likely to amaze as confuse. Still, worth trying.
Under the Skin shares many similarities with a film I enjoyed immensely last year, Only God Forgives.
A talented, attractive star in the main role, lingering shots and sparse dialogue. Yet although it has a more interesting central idea the film as a whole had the opposite effect on me; leaving me looking at my watch and finding the experience quite dull.
