Who’s inside your mind?
An elite assassin uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people’s bodies, driving them to commit assassinations for high-paying clients. A film that could only have come from the mind of a Cronenberg. Brandon, son of David, takes us on a visceral, chilling and “uncut” rollercoaster ride.
Tasya Vos is a corporate agent who uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people’s bodies, driving them to commit assassinations for the benefit of the company. While she has a special gift for the work, her experiences on these jobs have caused a dramatic change in her, and in her own life she struggles to suppress violent memories and urges. As her mental strain intensifies, she begins to lose control, and soon she finds herself trapped in the mind of a man whose identity threatens to obliterate her own.
Cronenberg has a lot of high-minded ideas, but he grounds them in human behavior and has found the right humans to tell his story. Los Angeles Times
If this is just a taste of what Brandon Cronenberg has in store for cinema, then long live the new flesh. Globe and Mail
It’s a disturbing head trip that is as savage as it is thought-provoking. It’s also expertly made. San Jose Mercury News
