Possessor ★★★★

ever felt like your job is intrusive, alienating and tearing you and your loved ones apart? or that your mind and body are just another tool in our corporate hellscape? well cronenberg jr here has a pretty nasty and fleshy lofi cyberpunk literalization of that experience. maybe falls back a bit too hard on vague, arthouse droning when it doesn't know where else to go with an idea but it has a good sense of mood and i was very into the psychological melding/fracturing sequences and sudden bursts of gore. if nothing else he's got the "tearing" part locked down lol
