quote: come in here with a strong opinion of something you know nothing about.
I know for a fact that Jonathan Glazer is no Stanley Kubrick - whether he's consciously or unconsciously copying or mimicing Kubrick's style (I have seen that in other critiques of his work) is of no moment.

I don't have to watch the Transformers to know they're terrible. I'm not putting Glazer in the same league as Bay - so hear me out - first off, again, I would watch Sexy Beast before the others, and that's unlikely.
My gut check on Under the Skin is a straight Species rip-off with ScarJo in the lead. I'm not a big horror movie fan, anyway. This one gets decent (or better) reviews. But I don't have to watch it to know that Glazer is no Kubrick.

You're not alone in this opinion. I'm glad you enjoy his work. Feel free to continue.
...still doesn't make him remotely as talented as Kubrick.
