POSSESSOR d. Brandon Cronenberg, 2020 at Genesis Cinema (14 DEC 18:20) / Part of HUMAN RESOURCES.

  • “Painting a grim, surreal portrait of the all-encompassing nature of the gig economy, Brandon Cronenberg’s sci-fi horror mindbender features Andrea Riseborough as a body-swapping assassin undergoing a seriously bad case of the Mondays. When her latest job threatens to shatter her already fragile sense of self, the resulting chaos sends her down a rabbit hole of violence and psychological terror that she may not come back from. Cronenberg’s stylish and haunting critique of contemporary society’s increasingly shaky sense of what it means to have a work-life balance stands out as one of the most hard-hitting explorations of work in recent memory.”
