From About.com: psychology:
“….new film A Dangerous Method centered on the relationship between Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Sabina Spielrein. The film stars Michael Fassbender as Jung, Viggo Mortenson as Freud and Keira Knightley as Spielrien.”
Here’s the website for the film: http://adangerousmethod-themovie.com/, and the trailer: http://adangerousmethod-themovie.com/trailer (contains some nudity and sexual content, but, thank goodness, little violence). Directed by David Cronenburg, who made The Fly.
YouTube version, without the sex and nudity:
Out in the US this week (23 Nov), in the UK in February.
Viggo Mortenson as Freud? mmmm.
The best cinema Freud I’ve seen was Alan Arkin in The Seven Percent Solution: (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075194/)
Sherlock Holmes meets Freud (with some narration from John H Watson – but that has to be Holmes’ Watson, not the one we’re interested in: must be a Freudian slip). Wonderfully silly, but Arkin comes across (to me, anyway) as being full of depth and intelligence. It was unobtainable on video for years, and hardly ever shown on TV, but I’ve just seen that the DVD’s on Amazon: now on my wish list.
Here’s the cast list & photos:
Lots of big names (for 1976, anyway).
