We're happy to report that Jonathan Glazer's artful science fiction horror film, Under The Skin, is newly arrived at SBS On Demand. It's quite unlike anything else you'll find among the 900+ movies available for streaming. 

Scarlett Johansson plays an otherworldly woman who scouts the cities of Scotland for solitary, single men.  When she selects one to take home, what transpires is something altogether different from the suggested one night stand. The men are never seen again, and she moves on to the next town, scanning the streets for the next victim who won't believe his good fortune (and has every right to second guess himself), when the sexy stranger invites him into her van.   

There's much to discuss in the atmospheric drama: its sexual politics; Scarlett's performance; what in the hell it all means. So join us for the latest episode of SBS' new culture podcast, The Playlist, as we give it a red hot go. 

 

Then watch the film for yourself at SBS on Demand:
