Though Possessor favors nihilist spectacle to existentialism, Brandon Cronenberg is more interested in exploring emotional dislocation than Christopher Nolan.

Andrea Riseborough occupies actor Christopher Abbott in a daring sci-fi parable that pushes the limits of what audiences can (or should) bear.

It is a singular work – one so ghastly, so unique, and so brutal that it will awe some and disgust others.

Cronenberg has created a mind-bending trip of a movie with more to say than your average actioner and is supported by spectacular performances and make-up and practical effects that seal the deal. Brace yourself. Possessor is brilliant.

There's an emotional logic to the action and imagery, carrying viewers along even if they're not quite sure if they're rooting for the innocent man or his troubled attacker.

Possessor never manages to wrest control of your mind, but it’s unnervingly good at getting under your skin.

Possessor is ultra stylish and uber violent, but, despite a top tier cast, it’s not always entirely clear what is going on and who is in control of the finger on the trigger.
