'A Dangerous Method'
David Cronenberg takes on sex and death, via Freud and Jung, without exploding heads.
We have to go into uncharted territory," observes psychiatrist Carl Jung in regard to his pioneering work -- and the complex, fascinating topic of Jung's and Sigmund Freud's touchy relationship and eventual falling out over a beautiful, sexually hysterical patient has been grippingly explored by director David Cronenberg and writer Christopher Hampton. Precise, lucid and thrillingly disciplined, this story of boundary-testing in the early days of psychoanalysis is brought to vivid life by the outstanding lead performances of Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender. It's sure to be well received (except, perhaps, by orthodox adherents of both physicians).
