Possession Finds New Life In 4K
Originally released in 1981, the movie was not what one would call a hit. However, as is often the case with eventual genre classics, time finds a way of bringing an audience to great works. Such is the case with “Possession.” Starring Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani, the film has earned much acclaim in the years since its initial release 40 years ago, and this 4K restoration is allowing audiences to see it in pristine form.
While the movie will be available via streaming, the “Possession” 4K restoration will be making its way to more than 125 theaters across the U.S. in the coming weeks, with the wide release beginning on October 15. So many who wish to see it on the big screen will have the chance to do so.
Banned upon its original release in 1981, Andrzej Żuławski’s highly choreographed nightmare of a marriage unraveling is an experience unlike any other. Professional spy Mark (Sam Neill) returns to his West Berlin home to find his wife Anna (Isabelle Adjani, in a role that earned her Best Actress at Cannes) insistent on a divorce. As Anna’s frenzied behavior becomes ever more alarming, Mark discovers a truth far more sinister than his wildest suspicions. With its pulsating score, visceral imagery, and some of the most grueling performances ever captured on screen, Possession is cinematic delirium at its most intoxicating.
