let me borrow a knife to kill

After watching this movie, I was completely dizzy. For the first time in my life I don't know how to rate a movie. Because of Scarlett's name, it is natural to think that this is a commercial film, or at least a film that can be understood without difficulty; but after watching the film, as a museum of modern art who has visited Europe for countless days and knows what it is doing, And, for normal human beings who have completely given up cultivating "modern art" cells, I swear, I swear by my dearest parents, that this product should be played on a loop in the viewing hall of the Museum of Modern Art... Therefore, in view of my In the case of the extremely underdeveloped modern art cells, the two schools of thought are deliberately arranged as follows:

Let’s first look at Rotten Tomatoes. Up to now, the average score of film critics is 88%, and the average audience is 63% (so film critics are all from the stars. So ,

let's take a look at what the film critics have written:

1. Perhaps we better understand this Glazer's work as a avant-garde midnight movie, using the existing traditional genre to explore the philosophical form of consciousness

It's perhaps best to consider Glazer's film

to be an avant garde midnight movie, using familiar genre conventions to explore conceptual philosophical ideas. – Uncut Magazine (UK) I still don't understand what you're talking about... explain it to you guys)

2. Glazer's film has since become an alternative thesis under the almost clinical analysis: How to define and understand human beings
For all its clinical detachment, Glazer's film becomes its own oblique treatise on what it means to be and feel human. – Sight and Sound
(Academic Emperor, I can't believe this is this one)

3. Very erotic, very scary
This movie really appealed to me. The film is loosely based on or atmospherically manipulated Michel Faber's 2000 sci-fi story - the result is a powerful visual impact and visceral agitation (you mean to vomit?): very paradoxical, very terrifying, Very erotic. At the same time, the film has an elusive sense of quirky humour that, I thought, would be unacceptable to many American moviegoers at the festival - The Guardian

It sure as hell got under mine. Jonathan Glazer's sci-fi horror is loosely adapted, or atmospherically distilled, by Walter Campbell from the 2000 novel by Michel Faber. The result is visually stunning and deeply disturbing: very freaky, very scary and very erotic. It also comes with a dog- whistle of absurdist humour that I suspect has been inaudible for some American reviewers on the international festival circuit so far

. ...the last sentence, everyone on earth knows, the British all laugh at Americans for their poor taste, so are they saying that people who can't understand dog-whistled, absurdist humour can be demoted to Americans? To the dog whistle, let's not blame the Americans this time...

Lust and horror are both on point. Because in this movie, the goddess Scarlett in the minds of the men stripped naked, more than once, and slowly stripped layer by layer several times... Well, it is really very erotic for otaku. But, but, otaku, read the title first before you buy your tickets: there's something scary in the back! So the ticket purchase instructions also include: Any little lust that you have born will be terrifyingly suppressed, so you should be careful to enter...

Another: a sci-fi story 14 years ago... That's the leap from big brother to love Crazy, fourteen years of leaping from black and white printing to 3D printing, from traditional animal husbandry to artificial burgers! ! ! I dared to use sci-fi 14 years ago, so I don't know if I made a big mistake in giving this film a "modern art flow"? Or is this movie completely retro, taking the slow pace of old black and white movies decades ago? What is it that has been delayed for 14 years, we will have easter eggs later, so stay tuned)


4,. A rare example of filmmaking

with unwavering vision, and one that will burrow its way under your skin for quite some time. – Daily Mail ( UK)

(So, be careful when buying this movie ticket, my perfect day was ended by this movie yesterday, and I still haven't recovered from it...)


5. A thorough retrospective on the beauty of the world, will The brilliance of the appearance is projected to the source of its charm.

An utterly beguiling retracing of the word glamour back to its witchy origins. - Electric Sheep

(Not to mention an alien pretending to be Scarlett, driving a white van to trick a Scottish man who wanted to have an affair into the car, and when he got home, once his clothes were stripped off, he was slowly sucked into a black hole and sucked away with flesh and blood. A piece of skin, and finally Scarlett began to be curious about human life. She spent two days with a kind man but failed to roll the bed. The next day, she ran into the forest and was almost raped by a bad guy. As a result, the alien Scarlett began to shed her skin. , is the story of the frightened villain burning gasoline into black smoke? Really, after reading the above, all the plots of the movie are really over...
What is this writing so charmingly doing? Are you writing it? Moulin Rouge review?)

6. Under the skin, pure horror is elegantly transformed into a film made by a director who can completely call himself a maestro. Under The Skin finds grace

even in moments of raw horror, composed by a filmmaker who can legitimately call himself a master of the art. Talented is this review: Scarlett is too good at playing an alien in human form, without any special effects. – This is London (to embarrass London’s logic) (I really want to greet this gentleman’s hometown elders, do you need special effects for pretending to be human, you know it’s good if you’ve seen aliens?) 8. Glazer’s film refused Instead of cramming the information to the audience, burying everything deep in the mind, the ambiguity of the story process makes the whole brighter. The result is an unshakable acclaim for the film.












In refusing to spoon-feed the audience information, Glazer's film instead burrows into the brain, the ambiguous nature of proceedings making it all-the-more beguiling. The result is a film that's hard to shake after the credits have rolled.

(film critic His profession is to describe the empty as a refusal to fill the ducks, and to say that there is no content to be buried deep in the mind, and the story will make the movie more brilliant. What a terrible profession, the black and white are reversed, the beauty and the ugliness are impermanent... If you say you don't look good, people will say you don't understand)

Let's change it up and see what the other side has to say (information from IMDB):

1. Someone is always pressing the pause button... wait, no one is the director!

2. If this movie was made during the Bush administration, it is legal criminal law to sit on a water bench (I don’t think I will write a movie review in the future, these buddies are so talented, I will translate it directly. 3. Why on

earth did Scarlett drive around Scotland looking for single men as prey? do not know. What kind of house did she enter? do not know. What is she doing to suck away human flesh and blood? do not know. Is everything going according to plan or is she just walking around aimlessly? do not know. Where did her special abilities go when the bad guys burned her with gasoline? do not know. The movie is over. "What do you mean?" you ask...

4. I think this movie will still be popular with some people. Who are they? The first is to add their own obscenity to the movie. The second is those who like some novel and kinky tricks.

5. The director admitted during the film's premiere Q&A that they needed to cut costs because they couldn't find anyone willing to invest. God, it took 12 years for this movie to be completed, and they can always guess why no one is willing to pay for it after all these years. (So ​​I think those film critics who vomit lotus must be pitiful directors, they are all kind people... P, S, Deng Deng Deng, etc., the easter eggs came out: it took more than ten years to shoot this sci-fi because of poor Money...)

I don't know if you are still willing to pay to go to the movies... This is really not the Scottish version of the skin...

    There are a few shots that are quite amazing, plus one star for the damp foggy scenery and the rain puddles in the forest

    Appreciate the angle of starting this piece. Interesting, low-key, cold and simple, metaphors a paradoxical relationship between body and emotion. The body is the weapon of conquest and the emotion makes oneself completely vulnerable. It would be better if it could be sharper and decisive. Only after I have been in the industry did I know that now this kind of movie that is neither literary and crooked to make people's chest tight, but also not stupid as a popcorn condiment, it is really difficult to find a living space. One of the annual recommendations.
