Possessor

Possessor ★★½

Yeah, yeah, inhabiting another body, bad idea. That's somehow clear from the start. I couldn't really get into this. It's stylish, obviously well filmed but, and I kinda promised myself I wouldn't do this, man, your father made Scanners...without boring guns. Actually, the whole hired killer thing is super played out. There's no moral dilemma, killing is bad, killing as an enterprise is bad and using other people's bodies to do it is super bad. To make matters worse all characters are unlikeable so I didn't care what happened to anyone. The coldness of the whole enterprise possesses a certain charm but it also misses something to hook you, a bit like later Black Mirror episodes.
