After I looked (pissed, but I honestly tried to watch) this movie, I read about him in  the"Wikipedia". And know I understand? What he had not to watch. Because no more, no less than a Nude Scarlett Johansson, I in this film, not saw, if you compare with his description. How you like a tape, events in which are in line with the synopsis — alien the body of the girl travels the city luring men for making them unclear. that, then she is trying to understand earthlings, become to him closer, well so on. The film in fact empty, so as empty and superficial as and description — on the screen, just as and written. And why look for the naked Scarlett Johansson? Possible. But in addition to this bonus, nothing in the picture there, ranging from the actors, ordinary people and ending with the soundtrack from which leaves all nice and pleasant. She dim, pessimistic, obsessive Arthouse oppressive and the kind which very few people want to watch, if only at him depression, yeah and is still under the issue.

Jonathan Glazer's critics like to call the new Kubrick. I did not like the three and the new Kubrick I'm not believe. Yeah if and liked it, still it is never manner of Stanley Kubrick. And even if they theoretically something similar, the between them there is one big difference — Kubrick's fun to watch, and Glazer no. And if the cockpit has some stately slowness allowed in case skills the Glazer, this block more in several times, minus the talent of Kubrick.

What for Johansson, on that "after this film, talking about how about the serious actress", then this, of course, absurd. I'm not a fan of Scarlett, but and nothing against her have. With this position can say that as an actress she did well in many projects: "lost in translation" (2003), "Match point" (2005), "the Prestige" (2006), "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (2008), "Her" (2013) — in my opinion, her best role (I have no sarcasm). Here it is, on the contrary, there is no like cake without cream. Of course, if it and had the Director, then Yes, well done, played it perfectly.

Here we got to positive points that I not found and after revered interesting facts about it. Among these, I call Adam Pearson. Although it is probably applies more to my admiration for the courage of this man, but not the painting itself, but still. For I was, of course, not shock very surprising that fact that man an impressive anomalies of the face, shrunken closer to the end of the movie in the car of the heroine Johansson — is a real person, but not makeup. I then it figured it starts with something interesting, vaguely reminiscent of shadow of David Lynch, but it was much worse than I imagined. This real people. Again say, I shocked by it courage and exposure. After the session ended early (thank rewinding) than planned, I read about Adam Pearson, who no matter what for tries to be happy. And it was much more interesting and certainly more inspiring than lean Arthouse hack Jonathan Glazer.

Stepping on Earth, learning to love.

Jonathan Glazer, which once — compared with Kubrick probably went out and this — retreated from books, took his movie (correctly in General did). Books I have not read so I will estimate biased it is the work of the Director.

What is a movie? Not about the aliens, their "karma" and the economy desires.

About us with you.

Anthropological, surface treatments but deep affected concepts — about the person movie and may not be easy.

To be in the shoes of a man — audacious, dangerous, deadly.

Stepping into his "development" from the notion of pristine nature (very far) the modern man, Adam, became a victim of various manipulations, complexes, complications. He drink, aches for football, running away from yourself, hiding in a word of himself. The heroine, if so can be assignment the girl - looking for fallen Adam to have lost its former greatness, for example, the ability to listen to the voice of reason... now most of the "clients" -selfish, greedy for fun, lonely (alone — this is an ABNORMAL condition of the person) and certainly them can't negotiate." Perhaps that is what the human condition, ethically considered suitable for use the aliens on the energy level.

And here comes the heroine, with this job is taking the image (which is not just an Image -it looks the found girls, apparently prostitutes, maybe it's too "humanized" predecessor who completed his term as... image suitable for directional fast convergence, bypassing the verbal and other barriers, but as her if it — woman? To attract, to lull the mind, drink that what was left on the drops... Kill packs. To be a mere object. But every saturation is awareness — what is Man. What to what they ... not there were ready, but had a premonition. Highlight — those whom she regretted — might have a special talent.

The death of the heroine in the absorption of the fire, as elements apparently unknown to them is the last thing she experienced, violence breeds death and Love — gives all the rest. But to understand it can only Person.

Actually bothering with view not with a simple solution, put positively, consciously, I can say — the film is not easy and even as thought the creators of that is Man.

As the referee — a film by Luc Besson "Lucy" — the same Johansson in the lead role, pointing to the similar tasks.

Her eyes, lips, hair... Mesmerizing appeal to animal mating, the rhythm of blood rushing drowns out the voice of reason, the mechanical gait of the body is sure leading to copulation... but not it but with resinous-black abyss, removing the skin is the best of any butcher and demonstrates a stunning dance lost content of the epidermis, a dying angel sinking to the bottom. Fallen from heaven, the creation, the mythical Siren of the depths of space, travels around the rainy Scottish Borderlands on a white van, setting the stage for exploring the random men. It seems that the nameless heroine intrigued by the strange behavior of these individuals, it looks at them indulgently, feeling their power, and gives to win a prize in the lottery of desire. And then brings them in your house, upon entering which, one day, you risk not to come back ever.

None of the roles Scarlett Johansson has not yet was so alive and dead at the same time. It is a terrifyingly blank expression that looks on you face for a moment and at the same time indifferently, looking at a piece of meat waiting for its buyer in the galactic grocery store. And so it goes on indefinitely, melancholic journey through the veins of the highways in search of new prey, because in the film is Jonathan Glazer's more important is not result, process achievement. Integrated into the real world Johansson, blonde creating melodramas and red superhero beast, tries on a new look and runs through high humidity Glasgow, almost improvisational interacting with environment, smoothly shaking hips or languidly seducing her hoarsely. It real never, at the same time frighteningly unnatural and it seems that threat. But all its power is only in appearance, you might choose not to follow the original target and step into another area of knowledge, and here it is, the boomerang effect — the lust has always stood on her side and starts to play against it.

Glaser long time to keep the alien origin of her character is not obvious, more focusing on direct mental influence. Pacifying people by the silence of the abandoned suburbs, a stunning noise of the shopping centre, nerviruya chaotic accompaniment binder episodes, the Director makes you feel uncomfortable in front of the screen, but at the same time attracts to the child checked by the aesthetics of the frame in features almost a step by step rehearsed scenes of "absorption" of victims, reminiscent of an eerie dance rabbit in the jaws of a boa constrictor. But until the inhalations and exhalations of the soundtrack loudly ticks crawling minutes, the heroine, combines in itself the functions of an observer and direct participant in the action, begins to look into which you look a random person in the crowd. The metamorphosis of perception occur abruptly, in memory is still alive thrown on the beach, the child, and mysterious person suddenly tries to the role of a sympathetic, a refuge from the death of one who is devoid of real life. The human world the eyes of the inhuman version of "Stay in my skin" is all well increasingly alien and violent than I would like, probably, everyone. Learning a new body turns out to be fruitless, because it — just a shell, stretched like a jumpsuit appearance, but because of the erotic subtext of the film has only a purely physical sense, rather the embodiment of brute instinct than trying to make sense of the unknowable. Manifestations of empathy not bring the character Johansson nothing but confusion, and it is symbolic that the climax becomes not a scene of a unification and adoption of a direct violence, the returning boomerang, which bears with a fear — may be the first genuine emotion of the heroine for the whole film. And here the work of Glaser admits the duality of interpretations — on the one hand it may seem that the long-awaited "awakening" brought a pain, misleading a stupor of disappointment, so not giving the answer to the question "who am I in this world", and on the other hand there is a possibility that the answer still was found, but to realise I had to remove the camo, just do not for the first time be yourself and see his second "I" has finally dropped the mask of doubt.
