    It shows a lot but never explains and that's what I like the most. Not every movie who tried this was successful in my book but "Under The Skin" was just perfectly made for me. The sound and visuals are astounding. Scarlett Johansson is just spot on and fits perfectly (although I had my doubts in the beginning). Everyone should watch this as it is one unique piece of art. More than any conventional movie you are free to love…

    Awesome revenge movie but sort of different. Nice twists, great music and good actors. A very "japanese" movie regarding the teenagers and daily school routine. It's sad, powerful and disturbing but simultaneously quite beautiful.

    Always worth a watch. It’s comedic but never really funny and it has a real sadness in it which intensifies with every minute of it’s runtime. Never understood why the director did only this one movie.

    Decent remake of ‘La isla mínima’ aka ‘Marshland’. Instead of the Spanish South in the early 80ies Alvert transfered this to East-Germany in 1992 shortly after the fall of the wall. He kept even the drone flights of the original. So for me it's more a rip-off. Still a good movie thanks to the visuals and the good acting. Time for a rewatch of the original.

    I like Eva Green as a badass. I like naval battles. I like Eva Green fighting. I didn't mind the rest. Maybe I liked the movie because of Eva Green. But I'm not quite sure.

    Oh what a lovely day! I watched a beautifully shot non-stop action filled crazy shit bastard of a movie! This is the shit! Miller delivers a well paced organic piece of work and gives us one iconic shot after another. He knows when it's time to break before he hits the next turn and immediately open the throttle to drive the straight at full speed. I had to watch the dubbed german version so maybe in it's complete original brilliance I'll go for the five stars.
