Talking About Jonathan Glazer, Part Two

Earlier this month, I began an online conversation with Glenn Heath Jr. at To Be (Cont'd) to discuss the films of Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth, Under the Skin). The first installment of our talk, written by me, is here. Glenn picked up the thread and responded here. Now the baton is handed back to me. In the latest installment, I explain why Glazer's movies have come out in almost the reverse order of what you'd expect from a developing filmmaker. Also, I dig into how Under the Skin can be seen as both a metaphor for filmmaking and acting. Here's my latest missive.
