Greetings community, 

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. 

Here's the trailer:

Briefly discussed in this thread:

( Just a short related tangent) Here's the trailer for Sexy Beast:

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!

It looks all over the map yet interesting. I like how it doesn't seem to give the movie away in a trailer like a couple other RS movies in the last few years did.

It's an effectively creepy film.

Off the beaten path, for sure, and far away from conventional Hollywood diarrhea. 

A24 was also the studio behind Ex-Machina.

Excellent, dark, and disturbing movie.

I enjoyed it. It's not for the action whores, however!

I kind of like it, most due to its atmosphere and creative concept.  I actually recommend "Birth" by this director as well. It's not about alien but to those who likes dark, atmospheric thriller will enjoy this movie.

i absolutely loved this movie. it's definitely a strange one and by far the best Scarlet Johansson sci-fi film.

@SparklingAmbien you mean SJ was in ANY other sci-fi movie?

I think Under the Skin would have been better as a 20 minute short film because it feels like a short film that's been stretched to fit a full-length runtime. As a result, the good stuff gets lost in a sea of monotony.

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.
