Under the Skin (2013)

A British Swiss American science fiction directed by Jonathan Glazer, starring Scarlett Johansson.
An alien being in female human skin lures men into a black pool.
Totally incoherent. The little plot that there was was poorly communicated. The only identifiable character was the alien woman and she barely spoke. The dialogue of the men was such a jumble of heavy Euro-trash accents that it was unintelligible. The video was some of the worst I've ever seen and it looked intentional. Proper exposure? No. Focus? No. We don't even need anything identifiable on-screen most of the time. Varg Vikernes of Burzum invented necro-sound with a similar procedure, so this must be necro-sight. I've been over the dialogue audio and the soundtrack was not much better. It contained long silences, diegetic sound and a repeated piece played when the men enter the black area. This won a total of 41 awards. This mirrors the "less is more" aesthetic going on in art these days. It makes me want to intentionally make the worst movie I can to see if it will get positive feedback. I wouldn't even need 13 million dollars to do it. Overall, an incoherent bunch of nonsense. I rate this bad.
