    Under the Skin

    ★★★★½

    Makes me so uncomfortable the whole time. The acting is spot-on, and the cinematography is stunning. And all the while being filmed in a gonzo-style of filmmaking where a lot of the film is actually filmed on the streets of Scotland as Scarlett Johansson improvises dialogue with actual random people on the street.

This film fucks me up more than any movie I've ever seen, and puts me in more of a depressive state than any relationship I've been in.

    I break down when I watch this. This feeling of isolation, impending death and speed of life going by is a horrifying thing, and…
