Jonathan Glazer United Kingdom, 2013

Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Under the Skin

Tarkovsky and Lynch reboot "The Man Who Fell To Earth" via "Soylent Green". With Chrissie Hynde. ScarJo - impeccable accent, btw - learns humanity by way of a pool of black goo in a suspiciously large Glasgow flat. Contains 3 of the most disturbing scenes in recent memory - "baby on the beach" will give parents seizures. Wonderfully unsettling artful horror, up there with Repulsion, Don't Look Now and The Wicker Man.
