A Dangerous Method (2011)

IMDb 6.4

“A Dangerous Method” is a 2011 historical drama film directed by David Cronenberg, starring Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, and Michael Fassbender. The film is based on the play “The Talking Cure” by Christopher Hampton, which is in turn based on the non-fiction book “A Most Dangerous Method” by John Kerr.

The film explores the relationship between two of the most influential figures in the field of psychoanalysis, Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), and the emergence of their protégé, Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley). The story delves into the complex dynamics of their relationships, as they struggle with their own personal demons, intellectual disagreements, and the tension between their professional and personal lives.

The film received generally positive reviews, with praise directed towards the performances of the lead actors, the film’s period details, and its exploration of the origins of psychoanalysis. However, it also drew criticism for its slow pacing and perceived lack of dramatic tension. Despite this, the film was nominated for numerous awards, including the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for Mortensen’s portrayal of Freud.
