    Scarlett Johasson is great, she dos a fantastic job. Its a scifi-horror film, so expect that. also expect to be confused through parts of it and expect plenty of nudity.

    I was totally mesmerized by this movie and thought it was great, however, I would be very wary about recommending it. This is one of those films you either love or hate. I don't think there is any middle ground. The film takes place in Scotland, where Scarlett Johansson's character picks up random guys off the street, and they are never heard from again. Don't want to give away too much, but it is a journey of self discovery. Artfully shot and leisurely paced (reminiscent of Kubrick). If you're at all tired, don't try watching this one.

    Scarlett Johansen stars as this alien in a human body where she must overcome our human obstacles and tries to understand her surroundings.

    Great film for fans of Stanley Kubrick. Intense and original. Brilliant understated performance by Scarlett Johansson. Would have loved an audio commentary from the Director and stars, but didn't get it.

    A film that's not for everyone. But, I encourage you to view this with an open mind. Visually stunning, thought-provoking and unique little gem. Definitely one of my top films!

    Best Movie of The YEAR

    I doubt there will be a better film released this year, if not a few years to come. Every single second, every shot choice, every musical cue, every edited cut, every length of time, every facial expression shown by the characters... was perfect. I truly doubt that this film could have been any better, because it was already perfection in my eyes. From the very moment she picks up an ant, cut to a close up of it's squirming face, cut to a foggy shot of a city building, I knew I would enjoy this movie far more than normal. This is the type of film that can only be experienced in a movie theater. To view it anywhere else would take away from the overall impact. But, I bought the blu-ray anyway, and it did not disappoint. Lacking on the bonus features, but thats alright. Still enjoyable. I cannot recommend this film enough. It is absolute perfection. It is moving art.

    This movie is very mind-boggling and will send you on the trip of your life. If you are a fan of 2001: A Space Odyssey I would check this out.
