Possessor ★★★★

I still have major issues with how lost in the sauce the themes get in the second chunk, but no other film goes quite as hard and aims such a wide net of thematic targets as Possessor does all year. Brandon Cronenberg tried to make his Videodrome while he’s more in his Scanners era, but make no mistakes his violence is in a world of his own, and it couldn’t have hit harder during detaching, desensitizing times. 

How Christopher Abbot is not one of the biggest actors on the planet I’ll never know this performance is in a whole other plane of talent.
