Program Notes

Three Late Shows Only!
 
Isabelle Adjani gives one of the greatest and most visceral performances in the history of film in this virtuosic piece that channels the mastery of Kubrick, the transgressive content and dark humor of Fassbinder, and the pulsing body-horror of Cronenberg. For decades relegated to occupying a hidden corner of film culture, Possession has been re-evaluated in recent years thanks to this exquisite restoration, and has begun to be recognized as essential cinema.
