Possessor ★★★★

I ideally need to watch this film twice: the first time is for the visceral impact, a second time round to further unpack its cerebral themes. The 'heady' Scanners meets Strange Days premise is tailor-made for my sensibilities and the practical gore effects are among the best I've ever seen. Even though I got the faint whiff of overindulgence every now and again, Brandon Cronenberg needs to make films much more frequently. Long live the new flesh.
