teaser of the year! Teaser of the year!

fuck i gotta stop saying that about everything.

this feels strong, like glazer has finally stopped aping kubrick and gone somewhere new. scarjo looks as lifeless as always but it seems to be all about form anyway. she's all about the form.

^^ agree.

reading the premise a few weeks ago thought it sounded kinda dumb, but that teaser looks quite good, it feels Lynchian too.

Ugh, I can't wait to see this. I saw a 4 minute promo reel that expanded a little bit on the trailer but not by much and it looks stunning. That being said, I think if you watch this and read any random review you'll probably have a good barometer as to what to expect...

Anticipating this being my favorite film of the year.

Reviews (haven't read em', so i have no idea about spoilers):


Telluride '13: Under the Skin (Walter Chaw)

TimeOut London (Dave Calhoun)

The Telegraph (Robbie Collin)

The Guardian (Xan Brooks)

Even Scarlett Johansson can't save Jonathan Glazer's laughably bad alien hitchiker movie (The Independent, Kaleem Aftab)

This movie is strange and incredible. Scarlett is great. There is so much to say about this movie, it needs to come out soon, so this thread can explode. The last two sequences blew my fucking mind. There is a moment when it gets slightly repetitive, but the emotional payoff that follows and the result at the end of that particular sequence is so good....Glazer has made a really strong movie about loneliness, desire, curiosity, longing and desperate men in search of a fuck. Let alone a movie about the alien gaze, what makes us human and empathy. I would love to talk about some of the specific visuals because, jesus, there are some shots/moments in this that I just can't shake. All those interviews where Carruth talks about sound, image, editing and music and a movie as an album. Well, this is that and this album is dark with some hilarious moments and some black humour and a lot of scary shit.

The tempos are not similar if that's what your afraid of. Under The Skin takes it's time. It's just that both are visceral films which try to cater to all your senses and don't spell things out. The use of sound in this for instance is incredible. There is a scene involving food where I just tensed the fuck up, wondering what the hell was gonna happen next. This is movie is about feeling and how you experience the world and hardly anything is verbalised. There is an interrogation scene for instance, or at least what I gathered was an interrogation, done non verbally, and it was so powerful for having no dialogue. Nothing is explained here. It's just laid out and you have to make it out yourself. It's not a perfect film and like I said there was a passage where I was like "ok..." but it is incredible filmmaking and very brave and very strange. If I said it's Movern Callar with aliens would that make it worse?

Movern Callar with aliens

Good call. It's also Kuroneko with aliens instead of ghosts. Or Species/Bad Taste reimagined as a hypnotic video installation. Shades of Red Desert too.
