Possessor ★★★★

An absolutely fascinating image of visceral horror, which gets all the more imperious as it leaps further down the rabbit hole into pure insanity. Sure, Brandon Cronenberg is taking a few nods from his legendary father in how Videodrome and The Fly both work on body horror and obsessive separation from reality, but this still feels fresh and full of its own believes. It's maddening at times, but it's all the better for it as Cronenberg crafts a hellish earth where our control can only go so far. I'd like to revisit Antiviral at some point, but this is positive evidence that David is not the only talented Cronenberg out there.
