  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★ Watched 22 Oct, 2014

    One mild spoiler in here that doesn't really have any effect on anyone's enjoyment of this film.

    The weird and trippy but oddly fascinating Under The Skin takes a basic science fiction premise - sexy looking alien seduces men and does something or other to them - and throws an artsy sauce onto it.
