‘Under The Skin’ is the latest film by writer/director Jonathan Glazer (‘Sexy Beast’, ‘Birth’), based on the similarly titled novel by Michel Faber. Starring Scarlett Johansson as an alien in human form, the film is part road movie, part science fiction, part mysterious thriller, and injected with a disturbingly raw sense of reality. A sexually attractive, irresistible woman roams the nightly deserted city streets and desolate countryside highways, picking up unsuspecting hitchhikers with her van. The ride they accept, will seal their fate. But for which purpose? At its core, ‘Under The Skin’ is a film about seeing our world through alien eyes and ultimately discovering the harsh confusion of what it means to be human.

In 2003 Scarlett Johansson played a leading role in a fictionalized biographical feature about the life and work of the 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. During production, director Peter Webber ran into trouble with his producers because of the look and feel of the cinematography. In a blunt nutshell: Webber and his cinematographer wanted certain scenes to mimic the look of Vermeer‘s paintings, who has become known as ‘the Painter of Light’. The producers thought they had messed up the photography, leaving the images over-exposed. Clearly, this was intended and the result can still be seen in the final cut of the film.
What’s the name of the cinematographer responsible for the astonishing photography in Peter Webber’s theatrical debut feature film?
