Scarlett Johansson’s Vagina, Under The Skin, and Exploitation of Ugly Adam

By Chongchen Saelee

I think “Under The Skin” may be quite overrated. If you’ve seen “Life Force”, you’ll get the same kind of pomp and hardcore sci-fi. If you want more titilation, then watch the “Species” franchise. I don’t doubt “Under The Skin” having some cool artsy sequences, but it’s possible it can become blase, if it isn’t already. No one comes up with anything new anymore. The fact that you get presented with an eyeball in an extended camera pull back should be enough clue, it’s done to death.

Now, the main draw is to see Scarlett Johansson naked. Let’s not lie about anything. The marketing is nothing but pimping her being full frontal nude in this movie. But the filmmakers had to decide which actress would embody their vision of beauty. Were this movie made in the 1990s, it would have been Nicole Kidman. But Stanley Kubrick already got her memorialized in “Eyes Wide Shut”. But at least “Eyes Wide Shut” had somekind of story, no matter how basic it may be.

Scarlett Johansson could be spinning a bunch of porcelain plates on sticks with both hands, and on one foot, the other twirling a ring or hula hoop. The gimmick would be that she is naked and captured at a high-speed framerate. Then they’d make her jump up and down to make her tits bounce. The whole thing would be played back in slow motion. And that would be considered art.

I remember this dude, he was a masterful artist and had a taste for the theatrics. He did something similar back in his hey-day. He commissioned some films displaying how awesome his “people” athleticism and physiques were. Nothing but a bunch of naked men and women jumping off diving boards, throwing javelins, running, etc., all in slow mo. Well, at the end of his rock-stardom, he locked himself in his bunker and blew his brains out.

And poor Adam Pearson. I remember the guy. It’s a small world.
