Under The Skin

The man is naked. He follows the woman into the dark. She walks on the surface of the black water but he sinks into it and is gone.

Millions of images coming at us.  Endlessly. This one is indelible.

Film history.

It's sort of a chase movie. Alien operative goes awol. The biker gives chase. It's Scotland. It's winter.

The alien watches and we become the alien. The human race so predatory and so merciful; perhaps not so worthless after all. The hunter falters and becomes the hunted.

Snow falls.
