Possession

Possession

Directed by Andrzej Żuławski

Banned upon its original release in 1981, Andrzej Żuławski’s stunning nightmare of a marriage unraveling is an experience unlike any other. Professional spy Mark returns to his West Berlin home to find his wife Anna insistent on a divorce. As Anna’s frenzied behavior becomes ever more alarming, Mark discovers a truth far more sinister than his wildest suspicions. With its pulsating score, visceral imagery, and some of the most haunting performances ever captured on screen, Possession is cinematic delirium at its most intoxicating.

This stunning nightmare of a marriage unraveling is a cinematic experience unlike any other.

Cast: Isabelle Adjani, Sam Neill

An allegorical tale packed symbolism and depth. This isn’t just a movie, this is art.

I really enjoyed this film. It kept my full attention throughout and had me thinking. After, I had to know more so I looked up the directors meanings behind the scenes and the film as a whole and understood it more which made me appreciate it on a whole other level. Pretty gruesome way to show the feelings of a dying relationship that a couple goes through. (If you digged the film enough, the Beyondfest store is actually selling Possession shirts at this moment for a limited time)
