Movie Reviews

Gripping "Under the Skin" gets Under your Skin
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Samantha Morton (Woody Allen's "Sweet and Lowdown" with Sean Penn) gives and mesmerizing performance about a woman who, unable to handle her mother's death, goes on a promiscuious sexual tirade with many anyonomous partners. Great Movie! Also stars Rita Tushingham, Claire Rushbrook and Stuart Townsend. A must see!"
A remarkeable debut from Samantha Morton
Gordon Skene | 07/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Emotionally wrenching, gripping, highly charged, yet thoroughly engaging film featuring the debut performance of Samantha Morton. Credit must also go to Carine Adler, the director who displayed a wonderful sense of restraint and pacing and was able to fully explore the complexities of Morton's character (as well as everyone else) without having to lapse into ... or broad-strokes. This film is everything a film such as "Girl Interrupted" wasn't. Quite simply, everyone is laid out in three dimensions and it's up to the audience to decide who is right or not. I was completely gripped by this film and left it feeling a sense of release and satisfaction to having witnessed it. Clearly, if directors like Adler continue their fine work, and actors like Samantha Morton (as likewise, the rest of the cast) continue doing projects like this, we're in for a very rewarding period of film making. Rita Tushingham is, as always, a pleasure to see work - although she has a small part, it is by no means wasted. Hers is a riveting presence and she sets the tone for the action to follow. This movie fairly bursts with energy while at the same time showing incredible restraint. In short, it is brilliant."

Sex and Female
Michael Kerjman | 04/23/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Sexually active attractive to women female seeks satisfaction by aggressively pursuing "normal sex" with no lack of finding a steady partner as mother of her passed away.

As the most of the UK-produced, this DVD is overpriced.
