Directed by Jonathan Glazer. With Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy McWilliams, Lynsey Taylor Mackay, Dougie McConnell. A mysterious young woman seduces lonely men in the evening hours in Scotland. However, events lead her to begin a process of self-discovery.
Disguising itself as a human female, an extraterrestrial drives around Scotland attempting to lure unsuspecting lonely, night-stalking, love starved, actual incel-tier men into her van. Once there, she seduces and sends them into another dimension where they are reduced to nothing more than meat.
It is an high concept art film, a sci-fi thriller of sorts, by a director famous for his visual artistry and it has an incredible, innovative and eerie soundtrack. But don't let that discourage you if you normally prefer capeshit or other commercial Pedowood movies.
What is so powerful about the movie is that Scarlett Johansson is the only professional actor in the film, all the other people are normal people recruited to play themselves more or less. You get to see actual wayward incel-tier men on film, portrayed in a humanising way. Not actors, not 'TV ugly' men, actual everyday people. The men vary in all sorts of ways but all are wretches of some sort. Playing a somewhat autistic alien, Johansson very frankly and directly discusses the details of the particular loneliness her victims-to-be experience.
Watch this movie. It will leave you with lots of things to think about.
Also you get to see 2013 Scarlett Johansson topless at one point during a bizarre seduction scene before her victim is sucked into an eternal blackness.
Johansson gets set on fire at the end of the movie by a trucker who attempts to rape her - but realises that she's not of this earth when her skinsuit tears. Very brutal and unsettling.
