Possessor (2019): Just an amazing film by Brandon Cronenberg, this one’s really worth seeing in person in the theatre.

Set in an slightly adjacent world to our own, Tasya Vos (Andrea Riseborough) is a corporate agent who uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people’s bodies, driving them to commit assassinations for the benefit of the company. While she has a special gift for the work, her experiences on these jobs have caused a dramatic change in her, and in her own life, she struggles to suppress violent memories and urges.

As her mental strain intensifies, she begins to lose control, and soon she finds herself trapped in the mind of a man (Christopher Abbott) whose identity threatens to obliterate her own. (Sundance) Gruesome, gory, and thought-provoking, the film follows in the tradition of Brandon Cronenberg’s incomparable father David.
