Al’s From the Crypt ⚰️’s review published on Letterboxd:
Corporate Espionage: 🤩💞💫
If you ever dissociate, this'll make you feel... a lot. Not to the same extent that Cronenberg Sr. felt like he had a finger in my brain, digging out forgotten dreams and slapping them on screen in eXistenZ (from which this film borrows more than a little), but it's a start.
It is funny that Cronenberg brushes up against the concepts of nepotism, legacy, and inherited wealth without ever fully acknowledging it, but hey. Possessor is as imaginative as it is derivative. Feels like an extra-long, extra-violent Black Mirror episode & there's absolutely nothing wrong with that in my book.
