Staff Pick is a monthly selection straight from one our own movie-loving staff members at The Roxy Theater. This month, Housekeeper Al Sønju has selected Jonathan Glazer's vivid science fiction masterpiece Under the Skin.
A mysterious young woman seduces lonely men in the evening hours in Scotland. However, bizarre events lead her to begin a process of self-discovery. Al says:
"This film has defied my articulation of it since the first viewing; an allegory of perception and self, it had me enthralled with the rest of the audience. The experience carries a lot of nuanced visual, emotional weight, and captures beautifully a particular sort of ambiguous, dreamy dread."
