Under the Skin

Under the Skin

On Scotland’s lonely back roads, a beautiful woman stalks unwitting men. Her identity and her motives unclear, she is simply, and quite literally, a sexual threat. Her eyes deadened but alert, she prowls night streets and deserted locales in a white van, seeking male victims. More could be said about the plot, but it’s best to allow UNDER THE SKIN to reveal itself. From its arresting first image – a pure, white pinpoint of light – it expands outward to become an increasingly absorbing mystery. It’s also a Rorschach test for everything one might fear about relations between men and women. (Cameron Bailey, Toronto International Film Festival)
