Jonathan Glazer United Kingdom, 2013

Endless Eye's rating of the film Under the Skin

4 stars for the score alone. Mica Levi conjures up some brilliant sounds to rival Johnny Greenwood at his best. Scarjo is a hauntingly beautiful alien who seduces Scottish loaners for the harvesting of 'human meat' on her home planet before she experiences a change of heart. The pacing of the film is delightfully reserved, allowing the tension to build slowly throughout a barage of stunning imagery.
