A female drives a van through the roads and streets of Scotland seducing lonely men. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

UNDER THE SKIN is based on the novel by Michel Faber, Directed by Jonathan Glazer, and written by Walter Campbell and Jonathan Glazer. I had heard a lot of buzz about this being a phenomenal film that everyone should see at least once. I realized what they were getting at upon seeing it as it has a very ambiguous storyline that would take at least a second viewing to draw out the meaning of this film. I felt personally the pace of the film drew you into the life of the alien like main character seductively taking you deeper and deeper into what ultimately was the victim’s demise. Whether the ending warps up the entire thing with a bow I think is not the point, but rather it leaves room or the viewer to come to their own conclusion. Outside of that it is a very well made film that showcases some very picturesque landscapes that would be amazing seen on a movie screen. So as for UNDER THE SKIN I give it 3 stars.
