Steve "Introvoid" Barnes and Nate "Voidmaster" Dunn join me for a discussion of A24's 7th film, entitled Under the Skin, directed by Jonathan Glazer, co-written by Glazer and Walker Campbell. Loosely based on a book by Michael Faber, it's the story of an alien we know only as the Female. The Female drives around in a white van, looking for male prey to turn into skin suits. As her story continues, her conscious begins to evolve, tainting her ability to continue on mission. 

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Adam Pearson, a racer named Jeremy McWilliams, and many other unknown actors, this dreamlike and bleak sci-fi/horror blend can be interpreted to tackle issues as varied as sex trafficking to xenophobia to gender politics. We discuss our feelings about the movie and its minimalist and spare style and what we think it all means.
