Joseph Sylvers's rating of the film Possum

Disturbing minimalism. Like "clean shaven" and "spider" we are forced into a claustrophobic world of schizophrenic tension and an unreliable narrator circling traumas he can never quite name and a child headed spider puppet that just won't die. At times the repetitions were almost too much, but the demanded patience was worth the horrifying finale, that I probably won't be able to handle another viewing of.
