Skin

By Alex Saveliev | July 26, 2019

Skin’s finale does wrap everything up a bit too easily, resorting to somewhat-jarring sentimentality. Comparisons to Tony Kaye’s American History X and Henry Bean’s The Believer are inevitable. It may tread familiar territory, but Skin does so with relentless energy, confidence, and passion. I can’t wait to see what Nattiv has in store for us next – and for Bell to get under another character’s skin.
