smndvdcl's rating of the film A Dangerous Method

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.
