A Dangerous Method
Drama • R • 2011 • 1 hr 39 min
A good film, despite the uncomfortable topics discussed. Exceptional acting involved.
All the performances are good but theres just something that holds this one back. Knightly is excessive in character at times.
A fun film revolving around early psychoanalysists. I enjoyed watching Jung's career mold through his trials and tribulations.
Superb psychological drama. Actors are phenomenal. A little slow but the burn is so good.
An interesting and imaginative story about the rivalry of Freud & Jung as they establish the theories of psychoanalysis.
A good first half, but in the seconds it loses a bit of the magic. Amazing performance though from Michael Fassbender.
An intriguing biographical drama from Cronenberg. It’s not an easy watch due to the story, but it’s worth viewing for the acting alone.
Good Cronenberg. Freaky just showing people be their weird selves. I miss old classic Cronenberg, but this is fun.
Complex. Slightly hard to follow without any psych understanding, but v interesting
