In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. And then, her curiosity about her human body and an accidental act of pity disrupt her mission.

Okay...I LOVED this movie.
I was just talking to my wife about it.

I know a lot of people were left scratching their heads after it ended based on the reactions from some comment sections, but it was really one of the most creative alien 'invasion' films I've seen in quite some time.

Also Scarjo gets naked.
Not just 'topless' I mean fully naked.

The thing is, it wasn't even as gratuitous as her clothed worked in her other movies! She was fully naked and it made sense that she should be. It wasn't exploitative or for shock value. I can actually see why she agreed to do it.
It almost wasn't sexual at all. Even though she is clearly a very sexy woman.

All in all, don't expect a complicated plot because this movie is more of a character study, and an exploration of human nature/the human condition through the eyes of an alien sent to serve us up on a platter.

It's abstract, disturbing, visually artistic and ultimately very beautiful.
It doesn't coddle the audience, it isn't verbose, it requires you to think about what you see, and it takes it's time revealing itself to you.

I would own it.

The only thing this movie has going for it is the full nude ScarJo. Absolutely amazing.

pick me lol, i wish scarlett would pick me :(
Humperdink - 7/7/2014, 1:28 PM
Oh just another interesting note.

Most of the guys she tries to pick up aren't actors, they were real guys who ScarJo drove up to and started a conversation with. They were secretly filmed and signed a consent form later. She just drove around the Scottish Highlands and randomly picked real guys walking around. They didn't even seem to recognize her, but she was in a wig and using an English accent quite convincingly.

Plus, who expects ScarJo to ride up to you in a van and ask for directions in the middle of the night?

I swear I always thought I could understand a Scottish accent but my God some of those guys...I'd swear were speaking an alien language because I could not pick up a single word!

Also the disfigured guy in the trailer isn't wearing a mask. He's a young man named Adam Pearson and he has neurofibromatosis. His scenes were incredible and very poignant.
