Skin – ***

Posted: March 7, 2019 in 2018, Drama, Short Movie, USA, XXX

Short movies are not often available to watch. Shouldn’t we have some kind of platform where young directors and film school students can upload their work?

The Oscar winning Skin is available to watch via vrt.nu until the end of March. You just need to log in with your Facebook account.

It’s a controversial win. A white supremacist doesn’t like the fact that a black man is smiling at his son. He calls up his friends and they beat up the black man in front of his wife and kid. A few days later the supremacist is abducted into a van, also in front of his kid, and victim of a clever revenge act.

It’s only 20 minutes long, but it’s a fascinating. It’s an original idea and it’s directed really well. How to interpret the message, is up to you. Don’t watch the trailer below. It kind of gives away the clue.
