Critic Reviews for Skin

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (22)

Bell is magnetic in the role, and there's real chemistry between him and Macdonald, but the film's formal glossiness and frequent overhead shots create distance between the viewer and the hate crimes on display.

September 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Skin does a great job in advancing the discourse around the recent rise of the far-right beyond the newspaper headlines.

September 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Skin is not a "nice" film to watch. But we watch it. And we keep watching it, in our heads, for a fair while after it ends.
