A Dangerous Method
Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender star in director David Cronenberg's adaptation of Christopher Hampton's play detailing the deteriorating relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. The year is 1904. Carl Jung (Fassbender), a disciple of Sigmund Freud (Mortensen), is using Freudian techniques to treat Russian-Jewish psychiatric patient Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) at Burghölzli Mental Hospital. But the deeper Jung's relationship with Spielrein grows, the further the burgeoning psychiatrist and his highly respected mentor drift apart. As Jung struggles to help his patient overcome some pressing paternal issues, disturbed patient Otto Gross (Vincent Cassel) sets out to test the boundaries of the doctor's professional resolve. A Dangerous Method screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Intriguing psychology drama


    From director David Cronenberg of 1980's 'The Fly' and 'History of Violence', 'A Dangerous Method' is a historical fictional exerpt set to 18th Century Vienna on the introduction of psychology, a must see. A fascinating period piece which blends drama, ideologies, love, tryst and derrivative history; psychologist allies turned rivals Carl Jung & Sigmund Freud debacle ideals while setting to defend their science in midst of scandal with Jung's patient then mistress played by Knightley. A great movie to college film class neither preachy or sappy, the movie challenges thought on humanism and the science of human behavior very well.
