The Late Show
Tasya Vos (Riseborough), an elite corporate assassin, uses brain-implant technology to take control of other people’s bodies to terminate high profile targets. As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment, Vos becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her. Brandon (son of David) Cronenberg combines a contemporary vision of identity crisis with the themes of body-horror that so obsess his father in this stunning mindgame of a film.
“It’s pure cinematic dysmorphia: to watch this movie carefully is to feel completely out of place, right alongside the people onscreen.” – Rolling Stone
