Possessor ★★★★

Sometimes buckles under its own ambition, and by the end of it I'm still not entirely sure where it's at in terms of plot or theme. But as a brutal, bloody, stylish, and almost sensual barrage of scenes, it manages to keep you in the moment with incredible practical effects and makeup, cold yet slick cinematography, and a pair of committed performances from Christopher Abbott and Andrea Riseborough. It's also less body horror than you'd expect from a Cronenberg and more just a solid action film in the end.

GRADE: B+
