    A brave experiment in cinema that richly rewards the demands it makes. The result is an amazement, a film of beauty and shocking gravity. show more

    Under the Skin can be confused for a movie that hides its meanings, when it's really a movie that hides its meaninglessness. show more

    Much of this is fascinating, as far as it goes, but it wouldn't go as far as it does into drama were it not for Ms. Johansson's wonderfully strange performance. show more

    When film critics fall in love with a movie that defies explanation and they can't even explain it, ******** original, daring, mesmerizing, sublime, etc. This film, while having some cool imagery has a flimsy story. You want a movie to take you on a ride you haven't been, but not to nowhere

    An extraordinary and mesmerizing experience. Sit back and absorb it. Transcends the usual Hollywood trash...not even comparable. One of the finest films I have seen. Easily makes my all time top ten list. If you think "Transformers" are great sci-fi film making, don't bother.
