Under the Skin - Film4 - 11.10pm

Saving the best for last, our pick for tonight is this 2013 film following an alien disguised as a human woman (Scarlett Johansson) who, while wandering around Scotland, begins a process of self-discovery.


While Under the Skin's meditative pace and surreal vibe may turn off some viewers, its unique story, stunning visuals, ominous tone and perfect central performance from Johansson as an otherworldly being learning what it is to be human makes this sci-fi one of the most singular and unforgettable movies of the decade.
