From the moment it was first mentioned I have been quietly intrigued by Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin.
The more I have read about it, the more it has been talked about in the highest circles. Polarizing at film festivals; some saying classic others saying confusing mess.

It looks very art house but beautiful too; really making the most of its rural scenery and creating some powerful images.
The reviews I have read personally have been positive, and I think curiosity will lead me to see it on the big screen and if not that then DVD.
