    Still as good or better than I remember it from the first 2 screenings. Superb cinematography, editing, acting, dialogue etc..

    Love the rough, super-8 style of found footage, archival and "new". Very creative editing and sound.

    Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Jul, 2014

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
