Possessor ★★★★½

Invoking the name Cronenberg is an immediate, unfailing method to conjure up mental images of grotesque body horror occurring at the intersection of sex, violence and technology. In this respect, Brandon Cronenberg was always going to find it difficult to escape the shade cast by his father’s long shadow. If Possessor is any indication, however, Brandon has no intention of breaking from family tradition. If it can be considered any kind of rebellion at all, it’s that of an heir repurposing the family banner to suit their own aesthetic; the lineage is readily apparent, but, make no mistake, this fortunate son won’t be resting on any laurels.
