Who doesn’t love a good possession movie? Oh sure – The Exorcist will probably forever remain at the top of the list of the genre (and with good reason), but lest we not forget about a little movie appropriately called Possession that came out in 1981. Directed and co-written by Andrzej Żuławski, this hidden gem boasts one of the most intense acting scenes that you may have never seen. Now watch below as Isabelle Adjani really goes for the gusto and smashes some eggs in the process:
RIP to those eggs. And RIP to anyone else who attempted to top this performance afterwards! Good Lord. How the fuck did Isabelle Adjani not get an Oscar nod for this? She did take home an award from the Cannes Film Festival that year, so all was not lost. Aside from her thrashing, mashing, and screaming – the camerawork is top notch, as is the choice to not use any music during the scene. I guess I should have cautioned you that the end gets a bit messy and you might not want to eat afterwards. But anyway, kudos to you Isabelle Adjani and kudos to your thrashing that should have sparked a new dance craze.
