Program Description

Event Details

"Under the Skin offers no answers. Johansson has no more than ten lines of dialogue despite occupying nearly every frame--and what gorgeous, meticulous frames they are. There is latent, pregnant energy in this picture, a thrum of dread that underlays every frame. And yet there's also an ironic playfulness that permeates and suggests the intellectual, literary tingle of reading great, but obscure, philosophy. Under the Skin is a masterpiece." - Walter Chaw.
