Possessor ★★★

Shines extremely bright in short bursts, gripping all the way through, held back only by it's inability to remain focused. We're knocking on the door of greatness, I think you could easily make the case for this being a 4 or 5 star film, and I really appreciate the topics that Brandon Cronenberg is trying to address here (from dystopian body snatching to the trans experience) but there's something in the way and I can't quite put my finger on. Strong recommend to anyone who loves his father's work, not a bad film by any means, probably requires a second viewing.
