The most striking thing about Under The Skin isn't Scarlett Johansson driving around in a van picking up men on the street and taking them to her lair. Rather, it's the film's weirdly dispassionate viewpoint on some really upsetting scenes. We talked to director Jonathan Glazer about turning his camera into an alien eye.
Minor spoilers ahead...
We were lucky enough to talk to Glazer in a roundtable interview with just one or two other press outlets. And we were eager to ask him about the strange process that went into creating this film — in which he had Scarlett Johansson drive around Scotland in a van with hidden cameras, trying to pick up random men who had no idea who she was. (The men were given release forms to sign afterwards.)
