Possessor ★★½

To me this is another one of those indie movies that has a bunch it's playing with thematically and subtextually but doesn't do much beyond a base level. If some of the events tap into more of the emotional repercussions it would've made more of an impact on me. Towards the end of the film it tries to explore identity crisis through a surreal lens which I heavily vibe with but if it culminated the themes it would've made this a home run for me. Visually and tone wise this really struck a chord with me but I can't help but feel empty after finishing this. Maybe I'll feel differently on rewatch, these films do tend to grow on me over time.
