Bill C’s Review – 2 out of 5
In the Skin is a science fiction movie with Scarlett Johansson as an alien that picks up men and lures them to their death.
The film is directed by Jonathan Glazer who made Sexy Beast several years ago, but is also famous for the music videos he has directed. While the movie is visually interesting and the soundtrack is good, the movie is pretty boring and Glazxer never really explains why things are happening. Sometimes that is ok, but not in this case.
Johansson is good in a role that requires her to be emotionless (if they remade this with a male alien, I’d recommend Keanu Reeves). In addition, Johansson has several nude scenes which, for many, will be the best thing going for this movie.
