Jonathan Glazer directs a unique and psychologically ambiguous film with sci-fi elements. It's open to multiple interpretations and really depends on how you the viewer receives the story and why you think Scarlett Johansson's character does what she does in this.
I can definitely see this as a divisive/polarizing film to many. It's quite ambiguous and has little dialogue. The tone and feel of this original film is also quite bleak, cold and grim.
The imagery in this is bleak, cold and grim but undeniably beautiful.
Under the Skin's score is very eerie, mysterious and atmospheric. Definitely one that makes your skin crawl. The score compliments and enhances the image perfectly.
Scarlett Johansson gives quite a mesmerizing performance in this. She removes all emotion and personality and plays the part of essentially an extraterrestrial very convincingly.
While I appreciate this original film's thought provoking nature, the thematic elements that I interpreted didn't resonate with me very strongly.
