Under The Skin (GB 2013), dir.: Jonathan Glazer, 103 min. (FSK certified for age 16+)
with commentary by Marie-Luise Angerer
»The street is her home, the night her accomplice: in a delivery van, the mysterious Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around Scotland alone – looking for prey. In garish clubs and dark alleyways, she finds her victims: lonely, bored men who are hoping for fast sex and who fall unsuspectingly into the trap of this unearthly beauty …« What this text announcing Jonathan Glazer’s alien-sci-fi movie doesn’t tell us is that the victims’ flesh is sucked out of their skin and fed into a blood-red energy current, so that the film is also a reflection on today’s media culture.
