Sean Bean just cannot catch a break in his movies.

It's rare for a film to genuinely shock me, but POSSESSOR left me absolutely shook. Absolutely brilliant visuals and direction, and stellar work from the cast, especially Riseborough, Abbott, and Graham. Executed perfectly for what it wants accomplish, which is be a stylish, original, jaw-droppingly violent thriller, though I feel like there's a lot of interesting ideas hinted at but never really explored beyond a very basic theme of how work can turn you into a cold, detached sociopath. Still, gripping stuff!
