  • Cronenberg isn't just looking to provoke with blood and guts -- like all good dystopian fiction, Possessor offers disturbing and timely observations about the world we already live in.

    December 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An entertaining techno thriller... led by actors whose mere presence does the leg work whenever Cronenberg's script falters.

    December 1, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Possessor feels both fresh and tense and full of surprising twists and turns. It successfully explores our experiences with modern anxieties and how we deal with them.

    November 30, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • A tale of cyber-surveillance and physical transference that taps into timely fears while also addressing age-old issues of identity, alienation and being an impostor in your own life.

    November 30, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a tough watch, but also brilliantly unsettling in its depiction of Vos's breakdown and the questions it asks about the malleability of human identity.

  • we are invited not just to locate our own vicarious thrills in all [protagonist Tasya's] deeply transgressive acts, but also to ask what, in adopting and exploiting these identities, Tasya, and we with her, might be losing.

Audience Reviews for Possessor: Uncut

  • Nov 26, 2020
    Cronenberg keeps some of the family preoccupations going whilst further distinguishing himself with this ultra-violent tale of proxy-assassins and the numbing of the moral sense, in this case Riseborough's; a killer about to void her own humanity. A clinical approach punctuated with horrific acts; a vivid color-sense, stylized photography, cold characters, hallucinatory montages. I averted my eyes from the screen at least twice. Cruel and classy.
