All Critics (34) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (28) | Rotten (6)

  • In closing, one must applaud the filmmakers for their wisdom in including the single most important full frontal romp committed to film in the past 20 years: Ken Davitian's nude wrestling match with Sacha Baron Cohen in Borat.

  • While "Skin" doesn't do any formally daring loops, at two hours and 10 minutes, it's a consistently engaging record with colorful input from each of the interview subjects, well-edited and with plenty of titillating footage.

    August 19, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • A breezy, open-eyed, and often encyclopedic compendium of all the ways the cinema has celebrated, exploited, and negotiated the power of the naked body.

    August 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's a movie with a lot of memorable moments, even if it may not be the movie for this particular moment.

  • Meanders a bit too much in covering and uncovering 100-plus years of movies, but the net effect is indeed revealing -- not just for the nostalgia of it all, but how understanding that history can inform where Hollywood goes from here.

    Top Critic
  • Thoroughly researched and often very insightful -- though with very occasional instances of lascivious smirking.
