Pretty bad and self indulgent piece of artistic crap.
Give me eraser had on acid and I will be OK

I am just wondering whether anyone would have heard of this movie were it not for Scarlet Johannsen being in it.

I give Johanssson credit for her eerie performance,but you can fast forward slowly and remove all the tedious walking around and not really miss anything.Brooding in an interesting way,seductive at times,visually mediocre,unsuspected ending.Unusual at the most.

Beautifully crafted. Dark, cold and, well... alien . One of the more psychologically stimulating movies I have seen in a long time.

I had to watch Under the Skin several times on DVD. When you watch a film the first time you value it mostly on its ability to engage or entertain, a sort of overall impression. This is definitely an A+ work even on first viewing. It was hauntingly moving, and kept my mind churning even in the hall after the viewing. When you want to rate a film seriously you consider all aspects of the work, like cinematography and locations, casting and acting, editing and writing, effects and music. In each of those technical aspects it's still an A+, especially after re-watching it several times. What more do you want in a movie?

Waste of time. Scenes drag on with a story that doesn't go anywhere.

What a Stunning movie, I can't get it out of my head.

I can how see how this is not for everyone, it's not a conventional in any way really and some people are going to be scratching their heads.

I guess if Stanley Kubrick's passing has left a void for you as it did for me then Glazer may be able to fill it

Wow, one commentor loves it the other walked out early. Polarizing for sure.

Scarlett Johansson gets naked.. beyond that, only recommended for people who think the Turner prize is not a bunch of pretentious pricks who think they know the first thing about anything.
Either them or professional critics who can talk about the wonders of nothing for hours without saying a single thing.

The kind of film you'd expect from an art student - who spends all his time in the pub and has never actually been to a lecture.

Wasted 1 hour 20 minutes of my life. (walked out before the end)

This is one of those movies that reminds you how high film can reach to express ideas, thought and emotion. It is a masteries of some kind. People were discussing it in the hallways after my screening. And that score! I am haunted by it. I am reading the book now and it too is great.
