HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT: Under the Skin
This week's assignment for Hit me with your best shot is a recent film that has thrilled many cinephiles since its debut nearly a year ago. 'Under the Skin' is the latest feature by Jonathan Glazer and it stars Scarlett Johansson as a mysterious predatory woman who roams the streets of Scotland. This was my first encounter with the film and man, I was captivated. Much of that is due to the mesmerizing performance by Johansson, in a role that plays well to her otherworldly beauty and effortless magnetism.
It's hard to think of anyone else in Hollywood who could have pulled off this role better. She's dangerous in the worst way (i.e. she's so irresistibly appealing!). I never once questioned why any of her victims would follow her into that dark creepy lair.
For my best shot then, I selected an image that relates to the power of Scarlett Johansson in this movie.

This scene was so heartbreaking, and it's so hard to find a well-lit shot of this sequence. Great choice here :)ReplyDelete
