POS­SUM

OUT 26 OC­TO­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen - Matt Glasby

“Can you spy him deep within, lit­tle pos­sum black as sin?” Beau­ti­fully made but fu­ri­ously ob­tuse, this Lynchian de­but from writer/di­rec­tor Matthew Hol­ness feels like The Babadook rewrit­ten by Sa­muel Beck­ett. Set in the Nor­folk back­wa­ters, where Sean Har­ris is tor­mented by Alun Arm­strong’s abu­sive pa­tri­arch, the at­mos­phere un­nerves, but it’s more haunt­ing short than fully re­alised fea­ture.
