Psycho-analysis is boring

To resume this movie in three short words they should be Bla Bla Bla because that's basically what you will watch for the entire seance. I do like a serious discussion about serious things in life but a thing I don't like is psycho-analysis. And because A Dangerous Method is about Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud that's what you get for the entire movie. Analyzing people or at least trying while in fact there is not much to analyze. So it quickly becomes really boring to watch. The actors are not bad though if you like that kind of boring movies but for me you could put my favorite actors in this story and it would still be crap. When you see Sabina Spielrein played by Keira Knightley acting like a total spass that can barely speak a word correctly and then suddenly evolve to another psychologist with no speaking disabilities you wonder if this movie can become any dumber. The longer I watched it the lesser I liked it. If I had to have a conversation in real life with any of those psychologists I would probably die from boredom. Like I almost did watching this movie.

For one time, Freud was right (web)

Personnaly, i'm rather Jungian than Freudian because Jung dazzles me with his collective unconscious, mythical knowledge while Freud links all problems to sex. This enlarged scope versus this limited scope is indeed talked in the movie. So far i didn't know that the two worked together and their meting was really interesting to follow. So it was rather a disappointment to learn that their break-up was due essentially about a woman whom Jungs likes to whip ass! It's not the first time (and surely not the last) when a great mind fails stature and private life reveals a much darker person. Anyway this movie has an incredible fantastic four cast: Fassbender is always this deep inside treacherous man, Mortensen shows his natural authority and his ability with cigars, Cassel, despite his beard, looks very much like his late father and his french appetite is true and for sure, Keira has one of her best part ever: always sweet with past fashion, she shows one more time her determination as well her inner weakness as she punches herself into madness! Cronenberg is inspired with his camera and offers us one of his best movies since a lot of years! NB: Jung's study of UFO was amazing to help me grasp that my love for space is a crutch to support me against my fear of death as the two are similar ... As Captain Kirk says Space (death) is the final frontier ... where no man has gone before.

Boring

Keira Knightley is awful in this, totally overacting it and almost caricaturing the role in the process. She ought to stick to comedy or something, anything but this. Viggo Mortensen has no air or authority about his role at all. Michael Fassbender is actually asleep throughout the entire movie. Sarah Gadon is a blinding light in the darkness, but sadly unable to light the way through as the darkness is too strong. The dialogue is absolutely painful, with some bits embarrassingly inappropriate. Knightley's character claiming she "got wet" instead of saying she was aroused? The editor wants shot for that remark alone. The breast shots are totally gratuitous as they lend nothing to the story and in fact detract from it. Finally, there are some pretentious conversations between Yung and Freud, but nothing at all that explains either their friendship nor their breaking up. All in all a dire film, no wonder no-one watched it and it made a huge loss.
