Under The Skin
Darling of the film festival circuit, Under the Skin is a sinister science fiction story following the predatory conquests of an alien across the damp landscape of Scotland. Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) directs a smoldering huntress in Scarlett Johansson(Lost in Translation, The Avengers) as she lures witless men to early graves.
Unnerving and absolutely menacing, the film is perfectly scored by English newcomer to the soundtrack scene – Mica Levi. With her arsenal of strings, synths, and bells, Mica stitches together a score dripping with both sensual allure and genuine Lovecraftian terror. Listen with the lights on.
