An Interesting Alien Film

Just saw this intriguing sci-fi flick starring Scarlett Johansson as an alien that feeds on men with strong, thick Scottish accents. It's an artsy movie is both beautiful and stomach-churning and features a haunting soundtrack that matches the (v dark) mood of the film. What I like most about Under the Skin, which tells a rather simple story and has very few dialogues, is that it looks at us/humanity through the eyes of an outsider. It evokes reactions (I immediately felt bad eating meat, of instance) and I thought humans are such easy preys since most of us are pretty stupid, right? I mean, look at those horny men being lured into the alien's den ... Interestingly, the film (and the alien) then decides to take pity on us, most ordinary people just wanna get on with our lives, before things turn nasty in the end. Looking at the state of the world today, with so many countries in conflict, what will eventually bring the end to it won't be any meteor or alien invasion but ourselves...
