    A Dangerous Method

    I'm curious as to how many of you guys have watched this:
    A Dangerous Method (2011) - IMDb
    "A look at how the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud gives birth to psychoanalysis. "



    If you have, what do you think of it?

    I will see this IF it goes into wide release. If it doesn't, I'll simply wait until it comes out on video.

    It costs the studios a lot of money to give a film a wide release. It also helps to build buzz during the Award season, giving way to a wide release (if the movie gets nominations; I think this one was only nominated for Best Supporting Actor from the Golden Globes).

    In other words: If there are less theaters showing it, the more demand audiences have to see it. Curiosity is a powerful agent.

    And yes. Manboobs galore.

    It was a good film, but the focus was a bit too much on Jung, I guess. I felt like it was more "his" story, instead of the story between Jung and Freud.

    I find that for movies, human psychology is best shown instead of spoken. However, this is sort of the antithesis of modern psychology as a science which attempts to quantify/objectify theories via an explicit process/text medium. Hence, what we get is a movie middleground that fails thrill compared to descent psych movies, and fails to educate compared to actual writings of Jung.

    i.e. its a case of conflicting mediums.

    i dont know much about the guys but from the movie i thought Freud came across as quite idiotic

    i really liked the theme of 'losing yourself' through out the movie. how jung is so constrained..... and knightley is so repressed.... then through development they both kind of lose themselves/ego through sexual desires

    overall though i thought the movie was more interesting than good

    Definitely worth watching. I was not aware of the affair Jung had with his female patient, who ended up working with Freud. The movie also explores the rift that developed between Jung and Freud as a result of Jung wanting to branch out and not become a disciple of Freud. Makes for a very interesting story.

    Here's a review I found helpful: Review of Jung vs. Freud in A Dangerous Method | World of Psychology

    I was excited to see this movie, but was disappointed. The subject of the movie is profoundly interesting, and the set and costumes were well conceived, but I felt the acting and writing made it a bore. I think it is worth watching if you're interested in the subject, but you might fall asleep, like I did.

    I watched it yesterday, but i have to say i disagree with you, i found the acting very decent. Some of the writing was annoying, the movie could have had shown more jung/freud interactions. Now i feel the urge to read jung biography to see what parts are accurate!
