A Dangerous Method 2.0 stars

Dangerous Method movie poster

Freud may be out of fashion, but he shouldn’t be boring. Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and Jung (Michael Fassbender) and their patient who became a brainy disciple and colleague, Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), trade analytic ideas and furtive, sado-masochistic feelings. Knightley bravely uses her beauty, even jutting out her jaw a few times like Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade. But she never finds leverage, and the film seems more like a footnoted thesis than a triangle of destiny. John Huston made the once-bold therapies more risky and challenging in Freud, partly by tormenting Montgomery Clift. 2011.
