Cinema: Under the Skin

We go all the way to Glasgow for our final North-of-London film, to follow Scarlett Johansson's earthly odyssey. An oddity, a fable, a elusive hommage to Stanley Kubrick, with an award-winning soundtrack by composer Mica Levi (of Micachu and the Shapes fame): suspend your disbelief and enjoy the ride! 

Johansson is phenomenal in every sense of the word. She joins Glazer in creating a brave experiment in cinema that richly rewards the demands it makes. The result is an amazement, a film of beauty and shocking gravity. Rolling Stone

Under the Skin, Jonathan Glazer, 2013 (108 mins)
