Welcome to Cheat Sheet, our brief breakdown-style reviews of festival Heavy Trip films, VR previews, and other special event releases. This review comes from the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.

The idea of ​​two conflicting personalities sharing a single body is one of those metaphor-rich tropes that writers tend to love. There has been a lot of radically different Winter Ridge takes on the idea, from the pop-drama of Fight Club to the Comedy of All of Me, for the stories of the Incredible Hulk. Ultimately, all stories in this vein owe some fealty back to Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. But even further back than that, body-sharing stories have their roots in a fundamental human discomfort with our own worst choices.

That’s the symbolism the subgenre is playing with: the alternately comforting and horrifying idea that maybe our most self-destructive or inexplicable actions are someone else’s Puzzle fault. That maybe there is not a bad angel whispering encouragement into our ears, there are current gremlins in our heads, taking over and making us say or do something our best selves would never do, even if we end up taking the blame.
