Under The Skin, Brad Pitt
With nine far too long years elapsing between 2004's "Birth" and the film festival premiere last year of "Under The Skin," Jonathan Glazer has been asked by many what took so long for the movie to get made. Indeed, we posed the question to him last year in Toronto.

Under The Skin
While the final result of Jonathan Glazer's brilliant "Under The Skin" is a tightly controlled, sharply honed piece, the production was much more loose than you might think. "There were lots of pieces, lots of film that was shot, 270 hours of film I think," the director told us at TIFF last year. "Sometimes I had eight cameras running...there were fantastic scenes that I didn't get permission to use. So it was quite a high wire act in that sense, you would not know what you were going to get every day. You would take risks that meant that you might be shooting for three hours and end up with nothing."

Under The Skin
While it might seem like nothing but sequels and blockbusters on the horizon, this spring, a film is arriving that is intellectually satisfying, completely riveting and an undeniably unique piece of work. We're talking about "Under The Skin," and after some new pics earlier this week, a terrific red band teaser trailer is here, cut by Jonathan Glazer himself.

A24 Release Dates Under The Skin Enemy Locke
While many modern cinephiles are going gaga for adventurous producers like Annapurna Pictures ("Zero Dark Thirty," "The Master," "Her," "American Hustle" to name a few), there's also another game in town that's quietly building up an impressive roster. Barely a year old, indie distribution company A24 has made quite a name for itself in the last year for acquiring domestic rights to auteur-driven indie fare such as Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa," Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," and James Ponsoldt's "The Spectacular Now" (some of our favorite films of the past year).

10 Music Video Directors Turned Feature Filmmakers
Many years ago, The Playlist started off as a blog dedicated to soundtracks, scores, music movies and the rest of the middle part of the Venn diagram where the worlds of music and film collided. Though we’ve evolved since then, that overlap is still something close to our hearts. One way those worlds are inextricably interlinked is in the number of directors who come from a music video background to work in features, and with most of us being that precise age that we can still remember the first heyday of the music video, it never ceases to surprise us how many of the promos we remember best were shot by filmmakers we now associate primarily with features. Arguably the form is experiencing something of a renaissance in relevance these days, not just via YouTube, but also with high-profile bands like Arcade Fire embracing and expanding their music videos’ artistic potential, even while the Robin Thickes of the world grab some extra headlines with risque or provocative content.

Under The Skin
It may have taken nine years for Jonathan Glazer to deliver his third feature-length film, but the wait for "Under The Skin" has been more than worth it. Knocking out Playlist writers who saw the movie in Venice, Telluride and Toronto (see our review and 5 Reasons Why Jonathan Glazer's 'Under The Skin' Is One Of The Best Films Of The Year), the film is a visually dazzling piece of work, packed with enough ideas that you'll need a couple of viewings to dig beneath its many layers. The first teaser dropped a few weeks back, but now a longer version—almost twice the length—is here and it's another great peek at the movie.

TIFF 2013 Wrap-Up
Though coming hot on the heels of Telluride and overlapping this year with Venice, the Toronto International Film Festival is anything but a third string pony. In fact it's probably the largest, glitziest and most glamorous of the fall festival season players and no-one doubts that Toronto knows how to roll out the red carpet as well as any of them. But outside the stars, closed off streets and screaming fans, the programmers also make festivities a cinephile’s dream year after year. 2013 was no different.

Under The Skin
It has been close to a decade since commercials and music video director turned filmmaker Jonathan Glazer released his sophomore feature film, “Birth.” Following his slick and stylish debut, the gangster flick “Sexy Beast,” the film marked a leap forward stylistically, with longer takes, a bold visual approach and a carefully considered integration of narrative and score. And now with his third film, “Under The Skin,” Glazer has again pushed the language of his filmmaking into bold and truly exciting places.
