Under the Skin Movie Review

I finally caught up with Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin 2013 film starring Scarlet Johansson and really enjoyed it. I liked it so much that last night I had a series of nightmares about zombies attacking a wooded neighborhood that I lived in. Good films, for me, cause you to question and don't had you the meaning of every single scene, character and theme. Glazer's theme puts the audience in an extremely limited position: We see Johansson's character going through the motions of picking up men, seducing them and bringing them home and finding out what she then does to them. We don't know why or how. The film specifically keeps answers about her origins and purpose from us and I applaud that.
