Jonathan Glazer United Kingdom, 2013

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Under the Skin

If Birth was Glazer's ode to stately Kubrickian detachment, then the film in question finds him augmenting that approach with an Antonioni-like emphasis on landscapes as psychological projections against the spatial alienation of Nic Roeg, circa The Man Who Fell to Earth. The third act decent into shock spectacle negated the more interesting examination into human behaviour, but the atmosphere and imagery is intense.
