More Human than Human

Andrzej Zulawski’s art-horror masterpiece Possession is many things: a nightmarish, deeply personal portrait of a disintegrating marriage. A bizarre blend of histrionic drama, otherworldly mystery, and the horrors of both body and mind. A claustrophobic political allegory for Europe’s Cold War divisions. And a platform for Isabelle Adjani’s blistering performance (which won Best Actress at Cannes) as a woman whose secret lovers include a tentacled creature that spawns humanoid doppelgängers. It is, above all, an utterly unique cinematic experience that will creep far under your skin and remain there. (35mm presentation)
