The Review: This seems to be a marmite film but I’m convinced it’s a masterpiece.
Scarlett Johansson is (literally) out of this world as an alien brought to Earth for the purpose of seducing and killing single men. Over the course of the film, she acquires human characteristics until she is conflicted. Johansson’s portrayal of confusion and someone learning for the first time about human behaviour is a marvel to watch.
The triumph of this film is that we, the audience, are horrified and moved by a totally unexpected outcome. This may be sci-fi but it forces us to reflect upon humanity.
The Verdict: Whether you love it or hate it, this stunning film will most definitely get under your skin.
