    Mysterious skin

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 25/04/2014

    » Like a trippy delirium, Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson as an alien siren who preys on men, sucks you into its black bile and keeps you transfixed. This is a 103-minute fevered dream, a delicious trance, and an eccentric commentary on humans’ skin-deep fascination with skin. It’s a fortunate accident that this art house sci-fi is getting a release in Bangkok, thanks not to the movie’s audacious aesthetics, but to the fact that it features a semi-nude Johansson — for marketers, that’s enough of a hook to cash in.

But it's not; this is tightly controlled filmmaking in the guise of something running amok, and it's actually that sense of dread, risk and danger that fires us up and keeps us on edge. Scorsese is 72 and yet, hats off to him, this film feels like a young man plunging into an all-night orgy while managing to somehow stay sober amidst the threat of overkill.
