Openly socialist version of American History X....
Verified purchase
except not half as good and very cheesy leftist wet dream version. It's antifa in 2019 chanting "whose streets, our streets"...not the 35 total nationwide actual KKK members...lmfao. I couldn't even get through 15 minutes of this movie before I had to turn it off. I mean, dudes are even in the office with socialist party posters on the walls FFS, so pitiful.

We need stories like this
Verified purchase
I'm so discouraged with the stuff that's going on in the United States right now - there's a movement of violence and people are excusing hate. But the reality is, people are lonely and isolated and, in that place, nasty things can grow. I love this story because it tells us there is ALWAYS hope. Darkness will never win. Not really.

Highly recommend watching this for a story of redemption. (It's based on a true story)

Exceptional actor(s)
Verified purchase
Jamie Bell is an exceptional actor and delivers a compelling performance here. Even his eyes are almost black - the eyes of a killer - throughout the film. Also love the fact that they cast an overweight love interest, not from a body-positivity perspective but from a gritty realism one. The dialogue wasn't breathtaking but likely accurate enough. Great piece of filmmaking.

Gutting, Vital, Relevant, and Helmed by the Outstanding Jamie Bell
Verified purchase
I've been an avid fan of Jamie Bell since his Billy Elliot debut and he has never been anything short of exceptional. Here, as real-life (former) white supremacist Bryon Widner, Bell is frightening, vulnerable, horrific, and honorable in turns. As I watched, I could not help thinking that this story is more terrifying than a sci-fi or horror film. It can be brutal, vulgar, sexual, and gritty; but at the end of it all is a vital story of redemption, poignantly acted by a performer who is truly a chameleon who is a pleasure to watch in everything. The rawness and superlative performances as a whole really elevate the film. Bill Camp, Vera Farmiga, Mike Colter, and Bell's TURN: Washington's Spies cast-mate (and one of my favorites) Daniel Henshall offer a fine supporting cast. Danielle Macdonald and the three young ladies playing her daughters also infuse the film with some heartfelt and heartbreaking moments. A story of abuse in more ways than one, Skin gets under our skin and hits every nerve--as it should. This is vital and eye-opening viewing, but not for those seeking lighthearted fare.
