Infused with a keen sense of intelligence.
December 23, 2003
A spellbinding, forceful film that refuses to be ignored.
December 14, 2003
Marina de Van will be familiar to some as the screenwriter of Franois Ozon's 8 Women, but she's a revelation here, and a terrifically disturbing one at that.
December 13, 2003
This is a strange and twisted film, but perversely fascinating.
December 12, 2003
This gripping (or nauseating) film has power beyond its ideas.
December 5, 2003
As disquieting a portrait of psychosis as has ever spilled across the screen.
November 24, 2003
like a train wreck, you cannot take your eye (my other on was permanently shut at this point) off of In My Skin.
November 23, 2003
a fleshy, female companion piece to Laurent Cantet's Time Out.
November 11, 2003
[T]hought-provoking, if you can sit through it...
November 7, 2003
The film explores serious issues of eroticism, control and women's relationships to their own bodies, and should be seen by anyone whose stomach is strong enough to withstand it.
November 7, 2003
Needless to say, In My Skin isn't for everybody. It's recommended to viewers who, like Esther, want to feel something, no matter how distasteful.
November 7, 2003
Even as Esther carves farther into her skin, devouring pieces, a moviegoer travels beyond such Hannibal Lecter territory and farther into the psyche and soul of a tortured woman.
November 7, 2003
It's one of the strongest, most horrifying debuts of the year.
November 7, 2003
If you can get beyond the ick factor, there awaits an accomplished movie in the tradition of David Cronenberg, in which the body's festering serves as a departure point for an exploration of what makes humans tick.
November 7, 2003
As her own object of self-desire, the appropriately toothsome de Van charts Esther's obsessive compulsion with well-controlled conviction.
November 6, 2003
Turns an Oprah-worthy subject -- female self-mutilation -- into a gruesome and surprisingly funny bit of Grand Guignol.
November 6, 2003
Not easy, but it is thoroughly cinematic and gripping.
