Regardless of what your opinion of Jonathan Glazer’s otherworldly stunner is, there’s absolutely no doubting that the film is a visual treat. It’s an intoxicating watch, and while the film itself didn’t connect with me upon first viewing, I have since learned to appreciate Glazer’s subtle take on the extraterrestrial. The film has been endlessly interpreted since its release in 2013, making it the perfect movie for artists like Lucas Peverill to dissect and define.
From an art standpoint, Peverill has created an equally stunning piece—by itself, this thing kills. Under the context of the film, however, I love how Peverill has encapsulated everything that has drawn fans to the film in the first place. It’s this simultaneously beautiful and haunting experience and Peverill nails that very atmosphere with his piece. It may only be a single image, but it’s telling an entire, horrifying tale of transformation. Love it.

That’s sick. Yeah, I actually have really come to love that movie. It’s sooo out there! Appropriately “alien”
That’s exactly right. It accomplishes exactly what it wants to.
