About Jonathan Glazer
An acclaimed director of feature films and commercials, Jonathan Glazer first found fame for his revolutionary work on Radiohead’s "Street Spirit" music video and Jamiroquai’s multi-MTV award winning "Virtual Insanity" video. His 1999 groundbreaking Guinness advert Surfer picked up two D&AD Black Pencils, a Gold at Cannes, and still tops many lists as one of the best commercials of all time.
In 2000 Jonathan directed Sexy Beast which was nominated for Best British Film by Bafta. This was followed four years later with Birth, staring Nicole Kidman and Lauren Bacall. His 2014 film Under The Skin stars Scarlett Johansson and is an adaptation of Michel Faber's 2000 novel of the same name. Under The Skin received two Bafta nominations and won critical acclaim as a 'landmark in filmmaking', recently coming fourth in The Guardian’s 100 greatest films of the 21st century.
