Possession, 1981 – ★★★★

A mesmerizing film, that even though I had no idea what was going on (and still really don’t) blew me away. Sam Neill is unhinged (and aggressively upsetting, but Isabelle Adjani is absolutely transcendent. Her performance(s) defy logic and acting decorum, giving us a role that’s both dramatically outsized and subtle at once. As the film spirals toward its conclusion one begins to feel crazy just from watching. I don’t know what that was I saw, but I’m so happy I saw it.
