Under The Skin (2014) is a film by Jonathan Glazer, also known for directing Sexy Beast, Birth, and a plethora of music videos.
All ALIEN fans and Sci-Fi fans who have an open mind should watch Under The Skin.

Now, Under The Skin is not for everyone, it requires your attention and an open mind. I find it to be a work of art.
I am only recommending this film for those of you who are jonesing for an intelligently dark sci-fi movie.
For those of you that have seen it, kudos to you!

2014 was a good year for movies. Under the Skin ranked as my number 4 of that year and deservedly so. Despite the sexist nature of the plot it was a breathtaking film. Nothing like I had ever experienced before in my life and that is something I am always looking for in a film. That ending was spectacular, I could not breath!
However I would never watch it again, possibly even if money was involved. It was such a disturbing film that rocked me very deep. I was so aghast by the imagery that I could not stomach another viewing. Like I said it was like nothing I had every experienced before and there was a reason.
Still a Must-See film and I highly recommend it for film lovers.

@NassaDane, it's disturbing, but quite watchable. I've seen it several times and I agree it's a great movie.
One film I'd find really hard to watch again, however, is Martyrs. It has good production design but, my oh my, I don't think I could bear to see it a second time.
