Warren Spratley's rating of the film Possession

360 degree tracking, harsh lateral camera movements, imposing performances, discordant dialogue. Cold War business, tyrannical architecture & decor, hatred of bureaucracy: I have no real idea where it all leads. Doubling, religiosity, murderous spouses. Zulawski is assured, & it's all impressive in a disconnected sort of way. 'Harrowing' is a suitable descriptor, but its mysteries cannot touch those of LE RAYON VERT.
