Possessor ★★★★★

"Pull me out."


Possessor, rather appropriately given the director's father and one of the costars, put me in mind of a meaner, more terrifying eXistenZ with an added fuckload of blood, gore and nudity. Andrea Riseborough is as brilliant as ever and Christopher Abbott continues to be one of indie cinemas brightest stars (and, since I've never been one to pass up a shallow observation, should say that he goes full frontal in this and yes it is beautiful). I found the film scary and engrossing and am sure I'll be having nightmares about the fractured psychopathy and body horror for weeks to come (and hopefully some nice dreams involving Chris Abbott).

The ending is one big Fuck You and I love it.
