Demand It!: Under The Skin

I hate these kind of films. What kind? Ones that you have to “get.” The ones that if you don't like it people trash you and question your opinion on every film that you say you enjoy. Under The Skin stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien that seduces men and then kills them. When I say it like that it sounds good until you realize that most of this “movie” is her driving and taking to terrible actors. Turns out they were real guys. It takes place in Scotland where the decision was made to say “Fuck it” to subtitles. The director also did Sexy Beast which was awesome but it was as if he took everything I didn't enjoy about that movie (drawn out scenes) and stretch it even further.

The only good thing about this movie is that you can watch it in less than 20 minutes. I was able to fast forward through most of this and not miss anything. It is a lot of her driving, meeting weird guys, stripping, the guys vanish, repeat. Even the one scene that everyone says was heart wrenching had no effect on me. Don't waste your time on this unless you just wanna see Scotland and a lot of dong.
