Movie reviews for A Dangerous Method

2012-08-28  Niels Risgaard Hansen: 6 out of 10
An interesting movie but something is missing.
It is as if the movie is trying to be both a biography and a drama, but somehow manages to fail at both. There is not enough story for a drama and not enough facts for a biography.
The scientific part of the movie is rather interesting, and it did spark an interest for me to research some of the material further.
The drama played out by the sexual tension between doctor and patient is acceptably played, but the development of the relationship is somewhat of an hindrance to itself and the rest of the movie.
Michael Fassbender as Jung does a good job and Viggo Mortensen as Freud is also quite convincing. Keira Knightley's part as Spielrein is rather overplayed in my opinion. Despite her being naked (and spanked) quite often in this movie, she is still not that sexy. If I should offer any advice, I would say she should gain at least 10 kg.

If you like dramas, this might be good for you. If you have interest in psychology and the development of the (outdated) theory psychoanalysis, this should be something for you. If you would like to watch Keira Knightley being spanked repeatedly while tied to a bedpost, this is a must see.
