Stimulating and sexy - intellectually, that is. An impossible love story between doctor and patient, a battle of wits between master and pupil, built on words, either spoken or inferred. Each frame is elegantly composed; the cast inhabits the real-life characters with appropriate restraint, except a bombastic and vulnerable Keira Knightley.
Cronenberg's most conventional film by a mile - a linear biopic regarding two famed iconic psychoanalysts, Jung and Freud. The decision to focus on a single case study in order to represent their career spanning socio-intellectual conflict is an appropriate dramatic decision. The script has its contrivances, but authenticity is provided through the performances of Knightley, Mortensen and Fassbender. A solid effort.
keşke olaylar "katalitik dışavurum"un anlatıldığı sahne kadar makul ve merak uyandırıcı düzeyde seyretseymiş... keşke aynı katalitik dışavurum etkisine dayanarak jung 1. dünya savaşını tahmin etmeseymiş... keşke freud'un faşizan halleri bu kadar gözüme sokulmasaymış...
Story of the relationship between Freud and Jung at the development of their theories and their dramatic separation. Sabina Spielrein's portrait is a beautiful picture of a hysteria, which Jung is aimed to treat by using Freud's methods. Psychoanalysis is transformed as both analysts take different turns on how to look at human sexuality. Missing point is the judgemental way their work and story are put.
I know nothing about philosophy, so the accuracy of A Dangerous Method is beyond me as far as Jung/Freud go. As just a film, it is flat, dull, and does very little to captivate the audience. Knightley has an extremely overdone performance, working harder on her underbite than making the character worth taking seriously.
