FILM REVIEW: UNDER THE SKIN

Under the skin is a film that whilst curious and engaging throughout, is apparently meandering nowhere, but as with many a film, it is infact actually slowly revealing itself. What appears to be every bit ‘art house’ direction, suddenly isn’t. What is evident throughout however is that something’s afoot even if we can’t quite put our finger on it, in a bleak yet mesmerising film.

Scarlett Johansson is perfectly cast in the lead role and half of Glasgow’s ‘lads’ provide a gallant supporting cast. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but definitely a must see, regardless.
