Interested in seeing David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method” yet? No? Here are a new batch of images from the movie to possibly pique your curiosity. You know why you don’t want to see this movie, right? It’s your mom’s fault. That, and you want to sleep with her. Admit it.
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 as they contend with a particularly troubled patient. 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 BurghÃ¶lzli 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. Meanwhile, Jung and Freud’s continued sessions with Spielrein lead to a series of profound breakthroughs in the methods that doctors use to treat their patients.
Starring Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, Vincent Cassel, Sarah Gadon, and directed by David Cronenberg.
