This (most likely terrifying) new flick is from Jonathan Glazer — director of 2000's Sexy Beast and numerous music videos — and it premieres at Venice Film Festival tomorrow. Variety says the film "seems difficult to buttonhole" and that feels right — after all, it is a science-fiction thriller based on the book by Michel Faber about an alien-woman-thingy (Scarlett Johansson) who travels the Scottish highlands preying on (via her sexy sexy ways) unwary hitchhikers. Shudder/fascinating!
