Dangerous Method The Movie


Dangerous Method The Movie

I went to see this movie which was from the 2011 Toronto Intl. Film Festival. It's a film of passion and ideas centered around two twentieth century intellectual giants, Freud and Carl Jung, his disciple. We see throughout the film how Jung's inability through psychoanalysis to keep himself from getting involved with his patients, especially a woman played by Keira Knightly. The relationship between the two men is greatly stained by Jung's affair. It's based on a book of real events and the final screen postings of what happened to these three people is really surprising. Some scenes were very raw and unsettling, but all in all an interesting film.
