Disney, let it go
What a delightfully dark and bizarre film this was! I adore films that take nebulously high concept ideas and incorporate them into utterly mundane settings. Watching an emotionless, mop-headed scarlett johansson drive around glasgow as an über succubus was far more compelling than i thought it would be! This movie has so many dark secrets & like all good films of this nature it doesn’t try to coddle you with needless exposition, nor does it show you more of its creepiness than it needs to! Plus, talk about a wicked freaked out soundtrack—this movie has it all!

I have been hearing about Possession for years, and, up until now, I'd never found myself in a convenient enough position to watch it. My preconception of the film, that it was going to be a creative, but tedious story about a spurned lover casting a spell on his ex, ended up being wrong. I was met with something far more interesting, although certainly more difficult to digest.
Żuławski throughout the film implies a level of expressionism…
One of the most uncomfortable movies I’ve ever watched, but a gratifying experience nonetheless. The over-the-shoulder camera during a large portion of the first half of the film created a sense of being lost akin to what Chiron was probably feeling. I was gripped throughout. The pessimist inside me was expecting things to only get worse for him, so every time something good would happen I would brace for it to be ruined in some horrible fashion. I imagine that…
