Possessor ★★★★

In a perfect world, every movie would star Andrea Riseborough as a hardened neural-invading assassin, Christopher Abbott as her stoic avatar, and Jennifer Jason Leigh as the corporatist mastermind behind it all. Alas, the world is far from being perfect (too many real-life analogues of JJL's character for that to be the case), but Cronenberg's brilliantly fucked up riff on his father's own legacy of the "fucked up" will certainly do for now.

(Bonus points to Sean Bean for breaking the curse! Kinda...)
