First Frightdays: POSSESSION
April 7, 2017 @ 10:45 pm
“A nihilistic, no-holds-barred portrait of a disintegrating marriage, featuring highly stylized, career-best performances by Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neill, Possession starts as psychodrama, develops into queasy supernatural horror, and ends up exploding all known genres. A film of rampant and astonishingly sustained hysteria, its craziness equaled only by its fecund imagination and deep conviction, Possession is the definition of a film that’s not for the faint of heart.” – Anthology Film Archives
A woman starts exhibiting increasingly disturbing behavior after asking her husband for a divorce. Suspicions of infidelity soon give way to something much more sinister.
Dir. Andrzej Zulawski. 1981. 127 min.
