    Pretty sure we weren't in quarantine when I started watching this.

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★★

    Glazer’s defiance in providing a more easily digestible entity is entirely fitting to the story being told and the mood being created. Under The Skin detaches the viewer from the identifiable shapes of conventional filmmaking, evoking an alien approach to such banal locations as shopping malls and roadside cafes. Watching the film is like discovering our trivial routines anew, from a removed perspective. This detachment may not suit all, but for those willing to succumb to the mysteries of what makes us human, there won’t be anything else like it – or to rival it – this year.
