Annotation: "On the eve of World War I, Zurich and Vienna are the setting for a dark tale of sexual and intellectual discovery. Drawn from true-life events, A DANGEROUS METHOD explores the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung, his mentor Sigmund Freud and Sabina Spielrein, the beautiful but disturbed young woman who comes between them. Sensuality, ambition and deceit set the scene for the pivotal moment when Jung, Freud and Sabina come together and split apart, forever changing the face of modern thought."

Synopsis: 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.

Review: -
"The dialogue is constantly confronting, articulate and stimulating, the intellectual exchanges piercing at times. Cronenberg's direction is at one with the writer's diamond-hard rigor..."
Review: -09/09/2011
"Mr. Fassbender is entirely persuasive...and Mr. Mortensen is intriguingly nuanced."
Review: -09/06/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he flick is a view of our perpetually nascent relationship to medicine, and particularly the study of consiousness....Michael Fassbender is reliably great..."
Review: -11/23/2011
"[I]t is talk -- smart, satisfying and sometimes even thrilling -- that is at the heart of A DANGEROUS METHOD....The confident directing style of David is essential in making this kind of intellectually stimulating cinema look easy."
Review: -11/23/2011
"[A] subtle and intellectually thrilling true story..."
Review: -11/22/2011
"[T]he exchanges between Fassbender’s Jung and Mortensen’s Freud are the movie’s greatest pleasures."
Review: -11/22/2011
"Mortensen, cast against type, particularly excels in the part."
Review: -12/14/2011
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A]bsorbing....Mortensen's performance is masterful in the way it shows Freud as a contained, analytical logician..."
Review: -12/09/2011
"Fassbender emits a real erotic charge....The movie is a sturdily constructed triangle of desires." -- Grade: A-
Review: -12/08/2011
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Leave it to Cronenberg to make the cerebral sizzle....The actors give it their all, especially Knightley..."
Review: -12/16/2011
3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]ts very restraint makes A DANGEROUS METHOD perhaps Cronenberg's most transgressive movie yet, one in which ideas - rather than their fetishistic signifiers - possess more energy and verve than the most calculated shock effect."
Review: -04/01/2012
3 stars out of 5 -- "Viggo Mortensen delivers another charismatic big man as Freud..."
Review: -03/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's a torrid love triangle, but one where the players are articulate about their own impulses....It's all the better for its restraint."
