I have a strong feeling that even for some of the most adventurous movie goers out there, this film will be especially confounding.
Once the end credits scroll completed at the conclusion of "Under The Skin," the latest film from Director Jonathan Glazer, I truly began to wonder exactly what in the hell I was going to be able to write to you. Indeed, I was tremendously affected by the film which is uncomfortable, unsettling, disturbing, and downright creepy as well as visually arresting and completely unlike anything I have seen since the inception of Savage Cinema. It is not a film that I can honestly say that I liked or even disliked, for that matter. But it is unquestionably an effective film that will certainly challenge your perceptions of what exactly a motion picture experience can actually be.
