Under the Skin

Scarlett Johansson stars in this moody, atmospheric and extremely experimental sci-fi film. Johansson is a seductive space alien (we assume) who wanders around Scotland in a van trying to pick up random men. (The "victims" are not actors, but actual Scotsmen caught on hidden camera by director Jonathan Glazer.) Occasionally our protagonist takes them back to her ramshackle home and sucks the skin off them. Though it sounds a bit like the exploitative 1995 film Species, this curiosity has actually got way more in common with the trippy 1982 cult film Liquid Sky. Slow, inexplicable and highly polarizing, the film's got a strangely feminist parable hiding in there somewhere. 108 minutes R.
