Possessor ★★★½

I feel like my issues with this movie are the exact opposite of my issues with Brandon Cronenberg’s last film, which kind of makes me excited for what he does next. With Antiviral I thought it was a cool premise and the execution was just ok, but here I thought the premise was sort of dull?  And I don’t know why!  Maybe I’m just over hitman stories but I thought on paper the plot was just ok, but if I didn’t see that director and that poster I doubt I would have given it a watch. Thankfully the visuals in here make it totally worth it and lead to some really great emotional moments. I was excited at the beginning, kind of frustrated in the middle, but the end left me satisfied for sure.
