In Jonathan Glazer’s visually stunning, unsettling, and very loose adaptation of Michel Faber’s 2000 debut sci-fi novel, an alien takes the form of a human female (Scarlett Johansson) and cruises the streets of Glasgow in a van, preying on men. Her human emotions are learned and not pervasive. As the story wears on, however, we begin to see a gradual slide toward something approaching human empathy in the alien creature. It may be that after all, the most contagious thing in the universe is humanity. Rated R. 107 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. See review.
