Page and Screen – A Dangerous Method trailer shows the pitfalls and pluses of adapting non-fiction
Liam Trim discusses David Cronenberg's upcoming non-fiction adaptation, A Dangerous Method...

As cinemagoers and telly watchers we are used to accomplished adaptations of fictions born on the page. Whether it’s the BBC’s latest Jane Austen costume drama or blockbusters like the Harry Potter series, we consume creations transformed from the page to the screen all the time. We are also accustomed to the fictionalisation and cinematic imaginings of happenings from history, with one of film’s latest trends being the increasing use of exciting events from the recent past. The likes of The Social Network and 127 Hours brought books about modern, real lives to the big screen.

But we are less used to films based on academic and extensively researched works of non-fiction. There is of course the occasional box office hit based on a lucky scholar’s lengthy biography or surprisingly successful history. However it’s rare for such books to be huge hits in print via Amazon, Waterstones or WH Smith, let alone dominate in theatres. It normally takes a strong following of the book to persuade producers that the appetite is there for a lucrative movie. Or a particularly juicy subject matter, ripe for controversial or intriguing expansion and exploration.

In the case of A Most Dangerous Method by John Kerr there is certainly the potential for controversy. His book, released in the early 1990s and based on new evidence, charts the relationship between commonly recognised pioneers of psychoanalysis, Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, which is controversial enough in itself. But its way into the world of intellectual competition and mental instability is the papers of Sabina Spielrein. She was a Russian patient of Jung’s, taken to a clinic in Zurich in 1904 at the age of 18. Her habits included “ill concealed masturbation”. And she and Jung had an affair.

As if that were not a sufficiently saucy and shocking cocktail, the nature of the affair remains scandalous even now. Jung was trying to drive forward a new profession and ensure its respect as a science and as a medical treatment. And yet he had an affair with one of his patients. An affair directly linked to his treatment and his probing of her condition. She was beaten as a child by her father and this sexually excited her. It doesn’t take much to imagine what she and Jung got up to. Sadomasochism enters the mix.

An official trailer for A Dangerous Method, David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Christopher Hampton’s play, The Talking Cure (which was based on Kerr’s original book), is now online. You can watch it here:

It stars Cronenberg’s usual partner in crime Viggo Mortensen as Freud, Michael Fassbender as Jung and Keira Knightley as Spielrein. Disappointingly for fans of Cronenberg and Mortensen’s previous collaborations, the story appears to focus on Jung, with Freud relegated to a secondary figure. The weight of the narrative therefore falls on rising star Fassbender, who also stars in a new Jane Eyre adaptation out later this year, and his chemistry with Knightley. Disappointingly for fans of history and good storytelling, Knightley’s role, from the trailer at least, appears to be that of kinky sex slave.

Even the slightest research into Kerr’s original work uncovers just how fascinating a story, a true story, he set out to tell. Spielrein was treated by Jung and she had some kind of sexual affair with him, although it may never have been consummated. She went onto graduate as a doctor and pursued her own career in psychoanalysis, playing a key role in bringing its breakthroughs back to Russia. She was treated by Freud but always remained attached to Jung.

Not only did Kerr tell this remarkable story with “verve devices” of storytelling and “scholarly precisions”, according a 1994 review in The Independent, but his book had a serious point. Aside from being part of a tantalising love triangle complicated by genius and a battle for the soul of a groundbreaking science, Sabina Spielrein sheds light on who was the more influential man; Jung or Freud. Kerr argues that Freud’s thinking was of its time and not revolutionary. In any case many of Freud’s and Jung’s ideas are recognised as plain wrong and outdated today but if one was more important in laying the true foundations of psychoanalysis, Kerr argues it was Jung. He helped create Freud’s reputation and was the “engine” of the profession’s growth.

Of course this is just Kerr’s opinion but it is backed by thorough research and is genuinely interesting. The trailer for A Dangerous Method focused on psychoanalysis for its first 40 seconds, before throwing Knightley into the mix as over the top, loony eye candy for Fassbender to drool over. The dialogue, from Fassbender, Knightley and Vincent Cassel, becomes shamelessly erotic; “never repress anything”/”I want you to punish me”/” why should we put so much effort into suppressing our most basic natural instincts”. Surely Cronenberg hasn’t wasted his time on soft porn with period detail?

Probably not. It’s probably just the marketing approach of the trailer. And there are positives and great potential to be found within its brief runtime. The focus on Jung suggests that the general intellectual thrust of Kerr’s book, that Jung was more instrumental than Freud, will remain (although Mortensen does seem to be portrayed as an infrequent but superior wise figure). Cronenberg is hardly known for costumed drama and after the hard hitting A History of Violence and Eastern Promises, we can expect something knew from him in this genre. There is also little wrong with well acted desire and I’m sure the full performances won’t disappoint.

The fact remains though that those behind the trailer for A Dangerous Method are following that age old principle of advertising; sex sells. The prospect of charismatic and fit X-Men star Fassbender having forbidden romps with a kinky and crazy Keira Knightley will interest millions, whilst Jung’s professional friendship and battles with Freud will lure considerably less. There is nothing wrong with humanising great figures from the past; it’s what great stories do and it can bring fact to life. But there is something wrong with completely destroying the intentions of a source born of one writer’s hard work. Even if the final film tells Sabina Spielrein’s full story and is truer to Kerr’s revisionist study, it will have sold some sensational half truths to tempt people to see it.

Let's get Freudian

Here's a movie that practically sells itself! David Cronenberg, truly one of the great directors, teams up with Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender to tell the story of how Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung helped shape the field of psychoanalysis. Honestly, can you think of a better combination of creative minds? We already know that Cronenberg and Mortensen work well together, as they've teamed up with amazing results for A History of Violence and Eastern Promises. And who doesn't dig Michael Fassbender! He's an Inglourious Basterd and and X-man!

No word yet as to when A Dangerous Method will be released, but it's set to tour the festival circuit this fall.

“A Dangerous Method”
posted in Adventures in YouTube, Movies, No Seriously, Questionable Taste Theatre

They say your childhood is over the moment you watch a David Cronenberg movie.

Related: the trailer for A Dangerous Method came out yesterday!

It stars Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud, Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung, and Keira Knighley as a pretty no-talent with the world’s best business manager, as per usual.

Here’s how this goes. We all know that Cronenberg loves his doubling (My First Cronenberg was Dead Ringers, back when I was young enough to be seriously unprepared for a movie like Dead Ringers), and I really love the visual and character parallels that are being set up with Mortensen and Fassbender. If we’re playing in the subconscious mind as well (and since this is Cronenberg, we are), I look forward to some nice boundary-blurring eXistenZ action. Also, the look of the film is impeccable right down to the desk accessories, so I’m pretty stoked.

However, Keira Knightley is not a good actress, and in less than two minutes she ruins this film.

(Let me do my disclaimer: Yes, she seems like a very nice person. Her commentary on the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie is far more charming and engaging than her performance in said movie, so she’s probably fun to hang out with. I like that she did a domestic violence PSA. All this makes her a nice person. I know a lot of nice people who are not good actors, and she isn’t, either, and that’s fine. I have a problem with her because she continues to get cast in otherwise-good movies over more-talented peers, giving us multiple opportunities to prove how short she can fall against the more talented actors with which she stars. Yes, you are free to like her. Okay, all covered!)

I can occasionally suffer through her, but looking at this trailer, I honestly don’t know if I can do it.

It’s a shame, because Mortensen and Fassbender are excellent actors, and if he’d cast Andrea Riseborough in this instead, you might have the strongest cast of the year so far *.

And one of the reasons this casting worries me so much is that there is more at stake than just some awkward moments of dialogue. David Cronenberg’s subconscious is often a treacherous place for women. Jennifer Jason Leigh did all right for herself in eXistenZ, and Maria Bello held her own in A History of Violence, but as a rule, in the course of being creepy, Cronenberg can seriously get supercreepy with the ladies.

Sabina Spielrein went from mental patient to one of the first female psychoanalysts (elected into the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society, no less – go Badgers!), and she had some controversial ideas about sexuality, and while I totally understand making her sexual identity part of her relationship with Jung, I know how Hollywood works and I am worried. I might not be so concerned if this were being directed by, say, Jane Campion or Ang Lee, but I cannot help but feel that for all this movie’s virtues, that inner journey will rest largely on the shoulders of the actress in those quiet moments between throwing mud at people and cooing to be punished in bed and whatever else Cronenberg needs her to do to be Wild and Id-y. Andrea Riseborough could do that, or Rebecca Hall, or Romola Garai; Keira Knightley can’t.

In conclusion, the combined power of Mortensen and Fassbender might get me to see this in the same way the combined Awesome Actor Camp got me to see Atonement, but it will be despite all this nonsense, because seriously.

A Dangerous Method's Trailer Gets Me All Excited Print E-mail
Written by Ivan Radford
Wednesday, 22 June 2011 13:07

The trailer for A Dangerous Method has turned up online and it's got me all excited.


A film about the relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, two psychoanalytical professors who - according to factual resource Wikipedia - when they first met talked "for 13 hours virtually without stopping"? It doesn't sound that thrilling, until you remember the names involved. There's David Cronenberg, a director who's barely put a foot wrong in his mentile career. And there's Christopher Hampton, the writer who not only penned Dangerous Liaisons, but also adapted Atonement for the screen.


And then there are its two stars:



is FREUD



is JUNG



Reuniting once again with Viggo Mortensen after Eastern Promises and A History of Violence, Cronenberg's tale sees Freud and Jung smoking pipes, stroking beards, and occasionally doing naughty things to Keira Knightley. All of which begs the cerebral and intellectual question: WHEN WILL VIGGO TAKE HIS CLOTHES OFF?


Sadly, judging by the trailer, it looks like we have to see Michael Fassbender go all Swiss on mistress Sabina (Knightley) instead. Not that I'm complaining. After all, it's Michael Fassbender. But I'd bet my Oedipus complex that Viggo gets naked at least once during the film. The chances of Freud bending metal with his mind are obviously are lot smaller. Although he does spend at least 3.2 seconds of the trailer spanking Knightley's bum off.


A Dangerous Method is out in the UK on Friday 10th February 2012. Read on for the full Michael-Fassbender-taking-clothes-off. I mean, video. Freud would have a field day with that one.

‘A Dangerous Method’ trailer: Michael Fassbender, spanking & Viggo!

dm2

Is director David Cronenberg gay? I don’t know if he is, but at this point, I’m thinking that at the very least, he’s bicurious with absolutely wonderful taste in gentlemen. Cronenberg has directed a film called A Dangerous Method, and it is a buffet of hotness. Michael Fassbender (MY FASSIE) takes the lead role as Carl Jung. Viggo Mortensen plays Sigmund Freud. Vincent Cassel plays Unknown Horny Dude (“Otto Gross”). And as for the ladies amongst this buffet… there’s an emaciated-looking Keira Knightley. I can’t believe that every new set of Angelina Jolie photos brings a chorus of “She’s too skinny!” while Keira continues to look like a bobble-headed scarecrow with little reaction.

Anyway, A Dangerous Method is about the birth of psychoanalysis, and the professional friendship that existed between Freud and Jung. As you can see from the trailer, Carl Jung has a wife (played by some blonde hussy that I don’t even want to discuss, it’s so depressing), and he begins having some kind of S&M affair with Keira’s character, a patient of Jung’s. He spanks her!!! This is seriously what I needed today:

SPANK IT. Sorry, I thought I was alone for a moment. I like how Fassie/Jung added a little dramatic flourish with his spanking. He’s an actor’s actor. As for Fassbender’s little mustache… eh. I know it’s historically accurate, but he looks so much better with a full beard or a clean shaven. Viggo, on the other hand, can do any kind of facial hair and still look like a dirty, sexy bastard. And Vincent… I don’t even know what’s going on with him. Random horny dude… sure.

A Dangerous Method Trailer

A Dangerous Method Cronenberg Fassbender Mortensen Knightly Cassel 2012 Freud Jung

The directorial CV of David Cronenberg (right) displays a steady progression for the Canadian in terms of genre preference and the themes of his projects. In the 60s and 70s his work mainly consisted of low-budget films and TV work, all of which he used to display and develop his unique style of film-making. The 1980s saw him apply his often bizarre creative sensibilities onto the horror genre, spawning unforgettably grotesque films such as Scanners (1981) and The Fly (1986), as well as his adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dead Zone (1983). In the 1990s he seemed to move away from themes of the supernatural, directing Madame Butterfly-inspired drama M. Butterfly (1993), the controversial Crash (1996, not to be confused with Paul Haggis’ triple Oscar winning morality tale from 2004) and video game themed eXistenZ (1999).

Throughout his 45 year career, Cronenberg has worked with a broad range of actors, including cinematic greats such as Oliver Reed, Martin Sheen and Ian Holm. He cast Jeff Goldblum in his iconic role of Seth Brundle in The Fly and even gave an acting role to Debbie Harry of Blondie fame in Videodrome (1983). Since 2000, Cronenberg has worked regularly with Lord of the Rings icon Viggo Mortensen, collaborating three consecutive times in A History of Violence (2005), Eastern Promises (2007) and the upcoming A Dangerous Method.

This week, the first trailer for the historical drama was released. Starring Mortensen, Keira Knightly, Michael Fassbender and Vincent Cassel, it looks at the intense relationship between Sigmund Freud (Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Fassbender), the founding fathers of modern psychoanalysis. The intensity between the pair hinges on the involvement of Sabina Spielrein (Knightly), a troubled young woman who comes between the men.

This trailer establishes these characters and plot points, and gives us an opportunity to see the authenticity of Cronenberg’s period setting. Initial impressions here are that Fassbender bears an uncanny resemblance to Jung and that Mortensen is almost unrecognisable as Freud. The cast list is impressive, the drama is intense and one should expect a certain degree of weirdness thrown in – this is a Cronenberg film on subconscious desires after all…

A Dangerous Method is to be distributed in the UK by Lionsgate and is due for release here on 10th February 2012.

Dangerous Methods is SEXY FUN

No comments yetPosted in FilmJun 22, 2011
By Alexandra Hinton

There is too much good (and attractive!) acting in this photo.

Viggo Mortenson. Michael Fassbender. Keira Knightly.

All being directed by David Cronenberg.

This means we are going to see lots of sex and maybe some meditations on psychosis and sexuality.

Especially as this film is about Freud, Jung and Sabina Spielrein.

I’m actually hella sad at all the coverage this trailer is getting where people are like “AND KEIRA KNIGHTLY IS CRAZY AND COMES BETWEEN THEM. LOVE TRIANGLE XOXOXOXO.”

Mainly because Sabina Spielrein was actually an academic contemporary of Jung and Freud. She was, herself, a psychoanalyst! The film seems to be about the year Spielrein was Jung’s patient and all the unethical sex they got up to. But after that year Spielrein went out and got her own doctorate and joined the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society. Her work on the nature of the sexual drive would go on to influence both Jung and Freud and when she moved back to Russia in 1923 and found a highly revered kindergarten (The White Nursery).

But also, she was pretty smoking hot and may have banged Jung (there’s no actual proof of banging).

Dangerous Methods is adapted from the play The Talking Cure which is based on the book A Most Dangerous Method and will hopefully be filling the screens with kinky sex later this year.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go watch Centurion. It’s like Roman Baywatch. Michael Fassbender just spends the entire moving running in slow motion.

1st trailer for new David Cronenberg thriller
Kim Hughes Jun 22, 2011

Actor Viggo Mortensen on the Austrian set of director David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, courtesy the Canadian Press.
Canadian horror master, director David Cronenberg’s new film, A Dangerous Method - which charts the birth of psychoanalysis in the early 1900s and more specifically, the tumultuous relationship between neurologist Sigmund Freud, his gifted pupil Carl Jung and a beautiful young woman - has hit YouTube et al ahead of the film’s release.

Based on Christopher Hampton’s stage play The Talking Cure, the film stars Cronenberg go-to leading man Viggo Mortensen (see also A History Of Violence and Eastern Promises) as Freud opposite increasingly critically acclaimed Michael Fassbender as the youthful Jung and Keira Knightley as the woman at the centre of the tale. Vincent Cassel also stars in the Canadian-German co-production shot on location in Austria, Switzerland and Germany.

As Clash Music reports, Cronenberg has also utilized the talents of his other regular contributors; Howard Shore has composed the score with cinematography overseen by the always brilliant Peter Suschitzky. IMDb has the film listed for a November release; definitely worth waiting for.

In other Cronenberg news, the director is currently shooting as adaptation of author Don DeLillio’s Cosmopolis in Toronto with Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson. As the AV Club cheekily notes, “Pattinson replaces previously named star Colin Farrell... as Eric Packer, whose Ulysses-like journey across a Manhattan traffic jam to get a haircut is beset by various disasters, encounters with oversexed women and “pastry assassins,” and gambles that could lead to his personal ruin.

“The also previously announced Paul Giamatti and Marion Cotillard (as Packer’s wife) are still expected to co-star, so there’s no explanation yet for why Cronenberg decided he liked Pattinson more than Farrell. Unless he himself is actually a teenaged girl, who maybe thinks Farrell is all icky now. But it must be said that Cronenberg will likely do marvelous things with Pattinson's natural ghostly pallor.”

David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method Trailer
Posted by Sean on June 22nd, 2011

It’s been a few years now since David Cronenberg directed Eastern Promises, and with the cult director taking on more and more mainstream fare, it looked like his career progression was about to culminate in his first mainstream blockbuster: The Matarese Circle starring Denzel Washington and Tom Cruise. While we haven’t really had an update on that project since 2009, it seems like it may be stuck in development hell and Cronenberg has since started to gravitate back to the smaller, edgier films for which he is best known. He is currently in production on his adaptation of Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis, but before that he was able to sneak in another new movie called A Dangerous Method.

Based on the play by Christopher Hampton, the movie finds Cronenberg reteaming with Viggo Mortensen for a period piece about the birth of Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis. Mortensen plays Freud while Michael Fassbender plays his associate, Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. The cast also includes Vincent Cassel and Keira Knightley, and although it looks like this could be Cronenberg’s Kinsey, the trailer certainly hints at some darker elements and plenty of kinky sex. The release date is still TBA, but I am guessing this is basically a lock for TIFF in September. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

TRAILER FOR A DANGEROUS METHOD MAKES IT AN OSCAR RUNNER
| By BernardGT on Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Back in the year of 2008, I remembered watching a decent movie about sex trafficking drama entitled "Eastern Promises", directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn of Lord of the Rings) and Naomi Watts (The Ring). It earned Mortensen an Oscar nominee for Best Actor, for his spectacular and excellent portrayal as a Russian mob and a double agent in the movie. I am aware that not many of you are familiar with Cronenberg's works like 1986's "The Fly" or 2005's "A History of Violence"; both earned a respectable applauds from the critics.

Now fast-forward to the year 2011, Cronenberg directed a new movie called "A Dangerous Method" and stars Mortensen once again, along with X-Men's Magneto's Michael Fassbender and Keira Knightley. The trailer of the movie is now available online, for which you can watch below:



Plot-wise, the historical film is set on the eve of the World War I, which is based on the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung (played by Michael Fassbender), his mentor Sigmund Freud (played by Viggo Mortensen) , and Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), the troubled but beautiful young woman who comes between them. The script is adapted by Academy Award-winning writer Christopher Hampton from his 2002 stage play The Talking Cure, itself based on the 1993 non-fiction book by John Kerr, A Most Dangerous Method.

When the project was first announced, it didn't bothered me much due to the subject matter this movie is carrying. I am not sure how to imagine this movie come into live. Yes, there are plenty of such movies but they seldom push things further then just dealing about sexual obsession or flirty bed talk. Apparently, this movie is based on 'some true story' that sets during the early of 20th century with two psychiatrists dealing a case of one Russian woman, of whom became a central of attraction between the two greatest minds.

Not until the recent news have pointed out that this latest effort by David Cronenberg may be one of the front runner to next season's awards race. Judging by the trailer, I love the setting and the premise of the movie. To treat this Russian woman, Dr Freud develops a method that involves a lot of kinky stuffs and sexual enhancement - BDSM (yes, the scene when Keira's character said "punish me"). Indeed, the real life Dr. Segmund Freud holds one philosophy that creates a whole lot of controversy; "sexual drives as the primary motivational forces of human life". In the end, both of them develop a relationship that pushes beyond the doctor-patient relationship.

"A Dangerous Method" does not have an opening date yet, although it will likely released at the end of this year to capitalize the award season.

Keira Knightley Has Spanking Good Time in 'A Dangerous Method' Trailer (Video)

By Moviefone Editors Posted Jun 23rd 2011 02:30AM

After a day of Internet gossip and rumors, are you ready for some stimulation -- err, intellectual stimulation? Or how about just a good spanking?

Well, it's all there in the just-released trailer for David Cronenberg's 'A Dangerous Method,' which Sony Pictures Classics picked up last week for U.S. distribution.

The film looks to be a fascinating take on the intense relationship and rivalry between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud that gave birth to psychoanalysis.

The film, written by Christopher Hampton, based on his 2002 play 'The Talking Cure,' stars Michael Fassbender as the psychiatric pioneer Carl Jung and Viggo Mortensen as his rival, Sigmund Freud.

Keira Knightly plays Russian-Jewish patient Sabina Spielrein, whose relationship with Jung causes a rift between Jung and Freud. Vincent Cassel also stars as another patient.

Check out the trailer for the aforementioned, um, stimulation.

A Dangerous Method trailer

A Dangerous Method not only has David Cronenberg directing but it comes from the writer Christopher Hampton who also has Atonement, The Quiet American and Dangerous Liaisons to his name, then there's the cast of Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightly and Vincent Cassel, a list that is rather impressive.

Watching the trailer though doesn't give so much of a sense of the story as a feeling that you're watching something a little seedy, something you're not supposed to be watching, and at times something that is a little unnerving.

A Dangerous Method is supposed to be about the relationship between Dr. Jung, Dr. Freud and a patient that they both connect with, originally though it was sold as the birth of psychoanalysis through the relationship between Jung and Freud. Here's the blurb from IMDB:

"A look at how the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud gives birth to psychoanalysis."

Now here's a new blurb that comes with the new trailer:

"Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Jung (Michael Fassbender) takes the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) as his patient in A Dangerous Method. Jung's weapon is the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud. Both men fall under Sabina's spell."

Watching the new trailer the psychoanalysis seems to be at the back of the story with the seedier parts at the front, well that would be the old David Cronenberg we're used to, but not the Keira Knightley and Michael Fassbender we're used to, or to a lesser degree that of Viggo Mortensen or Vincent Cassel.

Is the trailer picking out the more deliberately controversial moments of the film to shock people into wanting to watch it and then deliver the fuller story of the birth of psychoanalysis, or is it just delivering what we see in the trailer, and the old Cronenberg?

Here's the trailer.

Talk: A Dangerous Method, Puss in Boots and Footloose
By Richard Turner on June 23, 2011

This weeks Trailer Talk sees Cronenberg’s new feature in the same post as a cat in some boots and people who aren’t allowed to dance.

A Dangerous Method

Who better to make a film about Sigmund Freud than the sex-obsessed director David Cronenberg? With regular collaborator Viggo Mortensen (playing the controversial psychologist), Cronenberg sets out to make a drama about our very basic human instincts:

Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Jung (Michael Fassbender) takes the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) as his patient in A Dangerous Method. Jung’s weapon is the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud. Both men fall under Sabina’s spell.

Hot off X-Men: First Class, Fassbender is quickly proving to be the hottest actor in town. His performance as Dr Carl Jung is quite the change of pace from the formidable Magneto, but Fassbender proves himself as a very versatile actor – demonstrating intelligence, fragility, and male predatory instincts. Mortensen appears to be playing a sexed-up version of the doctor, so I doubt the film will have historical accuracy on its agenda. Kiera Knightley’s appearance is perhaps is the most surprising, playing a sexually tormented patient with an appetite for spanking.

Expect lots of psychoanalysis and debauchery in this rather raunchy Hollywood title. Cronenberg has a knack of getting inside the human mind so I’m rather looking forward to this.

A Dangerous Method trailer: let's talk

Moody period thinker or smutty, sex-obsessed farce? Lie back on the couch and give us your first impressions

For anyone who thought A History of Violence was one of the best films of the last decade and Eastern Promises, while not brilliant, was certainly pretty gamey, the prospect David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen's third consecutive collaboration is exciting.

Trouble is, Mortensen doesn't seem to feature a whole lot. Most of the running time for the first look at A Dangerous Method – billed, on IMBb at least, as a look at the intense relationship between Freud (Mortensen) and Jung (Michael Fassbender) and how it spawned psychotherapy – appears to be devoted instead to the intense relationship between Jung and a spank-happy Russian patient, played by Keira Knightley.

Christopher Hampton's screenplay, adapted from his stage play The Talking Cure, wobbles – in this condensed format, at least – awfully close to Carry On Shrinking. For the first half, at least. Loaded lines such as "Perhaps she's the one for your experimental treatment?"; "There has been the most dramatic improvement!" soon give way to frank erotica: "I want you to punish me", "Never repress anything", etc.

It does look gripping, in a Kinsey-meets-The-King's-Speech kind of way. But are they flogging the sex angle a touch too hard?

Keira Knightley, Michael Fassbender Get Freudian In A Dangerous Method
Published On Tuesday, June 21, 2011 By Halle Kiefer.

If you thought your Intro To Psych was profoundly boring, clearly your instructor didn’t focus nearly enough on the soaking wet nightgowns, spankings and general sexual intrigue of the field. It turns out, the beginnings of psychotherapy weren’t all about smoking jackets and faulty scientific method; they were basically an erotic thriller written by David Cronenberg, as we can clearly see demonstrated by Keira Knightley and X-Men: First Class star Michael Fassbender in the upcoming A Dangerous Method. Fassbender stars as a super hot Dr. Carl Jung, student of Viggo Mortensen‘s historically inaccurate megababe Sigmund Freud, as the good doctor attempts to cure sexy mental patient Sabina Spielrein, played by Knightley, thus giving birth to modern, smoking hot psychoanalysis. The unsound, potentially harmful treatment of psychological illness has never looked so steamy!

When Siggy Met Carl...: 'A Dangerous Method' trailer
by Jeff Labrecque

When David Cronenberg’s calculated creepiness collides with proper Edwardian Era aesthetics in the film, A Dangerous Method, the director of such films as The History of Violence and Eastern Promises prevails. Working again with Viggo Mortensen, who plays a graying Sigmund Freud opposite Michael Fassbender’s romantically conflicted Carl Jung, Cronenberg mines the primal urges that lurk beneath the tightest of buttons and stiff collars. Keira Knightley plays a Russian virgin — but, of course — who tempts and titillates Jung in a way that would make a James Spader character proud. Take a look at the saucy new trailer.

DANGEROUS METHOD Trailer Reveals That Kinkiness Began With Michael Fassbender
By Devin Faraci | June 21, 2011

A new Cronenberg! Starring Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen! And it’s about kinkiness and S&M and depravity, but through a psychological lens! Sign me up.

The trailer for A Dangerous Method, based on Christopher Hampton’s play of the same name, pits Fassbender’s sexy Carl Jung against Mortensen’s stern Sigmund Freud. Between them is the wet (literally in one scene!), quivering, daddy issue-filled Keira Knightley. And out of this hot triangle of repression and kink will be born psychoanalysis! And perhaps one of them will have weird things grow out of their flesh. It’s Cronenberg, so never say never.

Our Radar: A Dangerous Method
By Rebecca Lenzini / Monday, June 20, 2011

There is already buzz for David Cronenberg’s

Keira Knightley and Michael Fassbender

upcoming “A Dangerous Method” and the cast looks exciting: Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung, Viggo Mortensen as Freud, and Keira Knightly as the attractive Russian patient they are both interested in. The film will premier at the Venice Film Festival which begins on August 31st. Sony Classics acquired the distribution rights to the film just this month and of course, it will be playing at Toronto, we assume. Oscar worthy performances are already being discussed. Can’t wait!

http://jonesalley.com/will-keira-knightleys-lengthy-neurotic-monologue-steal-the-show-in-a-dangerous-method/?

Will Keira Knightley’s Lengthy Neurotic Monologue Steal The Show In ‘A Dangerous Method’?

Well, don’t take place too much emphasis on it just yet—this is based on one person’s observation from an early screening—but that said it’s an intriguing bit of info that is certainly worth noting and paying attention to.

A helpful reader has pointed us in the direction of the an early reaction to David Cronenberg‘s “A Dangerous Method” that has made it’s way to the IMDB boards. Someone named Davis McArdle recently caught a screening of the film (we’d guess a test screening since in their announcement yesterday, Sony Pictures Classics noted the film was still in post-production) and hit Twitter hard with numerous tweets about his thoughts on the film. “Fascinating doesn’t quite cut it, amazing neither. But then again, I was the only one to even like it here. Yes, it is stage-y. Yes, it is dense. But yes, it’s also pure Cronenberg. And Keira Knightley is either on her way to hopping the Kodiak Theater stage next year or get ridiculed by audiences for years to come,” McArdle noted. So what will be the divisive scene?

”...Keira has one scene in particular, a brutal but wonderful 3mins monologue in full neurosis, that others found too much,” McArdle tweeted adding, “...They expected something else entirely, more in the vein of ATONEMENT or PRIDE & PREJUDICE…people see Period Piece + Kiera and immediately think of that. Um, ahem, and *smart* critics should love it…It really is a very cerebral piece, as subtle as sophisticated. Only it deals w/controversial themes & that put off many.”

So let’s put this into some context shall we? In the film Keira Knightley plays Sabina Spielrein, a patient who is admitted in August 1904 to the Burghölzli mental hospital near Zürich where she came under the care of Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender). The two developed a relationship—that some contend turned sexual—much to the chagrin of Jung’s mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen). The “dangerous method” the title likely refers to is also known as “the talking cure” (which was the working title of the film and same name of the Christopher Hampton play on which it is based), which layed out the first steps of psychoanalysis pioneered by Freud in which patients talked through their symptoms. So, could Knightley’s extended monologue stem from the application of this new method? That would probably be a pretty good guess.

At any rate, it stokes our anticipation to the film which McArdle says is “more M.BUTTERFLY than ‘audience friendlies’ [sic] HISTORY OF VIOLENCE or E.PROMISES” which is interesting to note. No release date yet, but the film is expected to make a splashy premiere at the Venice Film Festival in August. And for your Oscar hounds, you might want to add Keira Knightley to your list of contenders for now.

1. Kiera Knightley + nudity = “One for the 7:00 of A Dangerous Method, please.”

2. I don’t know who this “Jimmy Cameron” is that you referreing too, but I assume it’s some lame filmmaker who puts out lousy movies, and not James Cameron, whose excellent films are most certainly very worthwhile.

Acting crazy + nudity does NOT mean Oscar for Kiera, escpecially in a film as twisted as this is likely to be. That’s the kind of cynical, ignorant, dismissive talk you get from people who would rather be watching a Jimmy Cameron film than something worthwhile. Cronenberg is the kind of director that the Academy predictably, and unfortunately, hates. I will go on record as saying that this film, no matter how great it might prove to be, will not win ANY major awards.

Acting crazy + Nudity = Oscar for Keira.

I’m not trying to claim there’s any direct connection, but the characters, setting and story are very evocative of Terence Malick’s unmade script “The English Speaker”.

And who says IMDb is worthless!

Everyone in the audience hated it….OSCAH!!!!

Definitely interested in this but it just seems way too dark and f’ed up to get legit awards traction.

This was posted to boards too: “By the way, I thought the movie was exquisite. Viggo Mortensen(with maybe the exception of The Road and A History of Violence),Keira Knightly,and Michael Fassbender all do their best work ever in this.Not to mention some blazing chemistry between the last two,the movie was surprisingly tender at the end because of this. I haven’t seen all of Michael’s work,but he delivers an intense performance. Keira’s screen presence cannot be denied in this. She had the bulk of the material to work with and she gives an emotionally shattering performance. Viggo, well,we can always expect great stuff from him. He is not featured as much as the other two however. I heard it’s playing at Venice,be prepared for some awesome reviews to come out of there. Also can’t forget about Cronenberg,who makes the idea of psychoanalysis so intense and interesting on the big screen. There is some sadomasochism(s&m) in the film, be prepared to see some butts and breasts.” imdb.com/title/tt1571222/board/thread/182958194?d=182958194#182958194

Wait, he’s the ONLY one in the audience who liked it? Anyways. I hope its not a disappointment.

Sounds similar to ashley Judd’s scene in bug, descrptipn/ reaction wise, which floored me. I hope this scene can come close to that one.

Trailerspotting on A Dangerous Method

Donald Clarke

Which film are you looking forward to the most this year? Readers will be aware that Screenwriter is eagerly anticipating Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. But the prize for most promising feature might just go to David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method. Cronenberg has long been a student of Sigmund Freud, so a film detailing the relationship between that still controversial figure and eccentric, semi-crackpot C J Jung is surely an intriguing one.

The trailer scares up mixed emotions. As we have said a thousand times, such promos rarely tell you anything worth knowing about the quality of the film. Quite often a promotional silk purse is made from a festering sow’s lughole. I half suspect that the opposite is the case here. Fan my oxters and mop my brow. They really are selling the thing as some sort of careering romp. Viggo Mortensen is characteristically solemn as Freud. Our own Michael Fassbender is sinister as Jung. All well and good. But with all that spanking, all that pounding music (probably not from the film) and all that breathless dialogue, the trailer comes across like an advertisement for a particularly vivid Victorian melodrama. Watch out Russian Keira Knightley. If you’re not careful, Professor Jung will tie you to the train tracks while twirling his moustache.

I wouldn’t be too fearful. We can trust Mr Cronenberg. Few film-makers of his generation have done such a fine job of maturing gracefully. The creepy wizard of trangression who made early exercises in revulsion such as Shivers and The Brood still shows his face from time to time. But the older Cronenberg has, with cracking films such as History of Violence and Eastern Promises, shown himself to be a master of the steady build. The casting all seems pretty sound — Knightley is at her best when fragile — and the screenplay is by the bright (if erratic) Christopher Hampton.

It is, perhaps, surprising that we haven’t had more Freud on film. He was in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. He turned up in that diverting Sherlock Holmes variation The Seven Percent Solution. Montgomery Clift played him in an interesting biopic by John Huston. And then, of course, there were his dog food commercials. Hang on. Do I have this right?

'A Dangerous Method' Trailer Pits Freud Vs. Jung
6/23/2011 3:55 PM ET

(RTTNews) - "A Dangerous Method," release unknown:

Coming off the critically lauded gangster films "A History of Violence" and "Eastern Promises," director David Cronenberg is back with "A Dangerous Method," a psychological drama that has already gathered a considerable amount of internet buzz.

The movie looks to dissect the relationship between Sigmund Freud and Karl Jung, the two researchers responsible for revolutionizing the study of psychology. With an all-star cast that includes Viggo Mortensen as Freud and Michael Fassbender as Jung, "A Dangerous Method" promises some intense drama and off-kilter views on sexuality, which would be fitting considering the subject.

Also included in the cast is Keira Knightley, who plays a Russian test subject who begins to complicate matters for Jung. Knightley is a good fit in period dramas without zombie pirates (see "Atonement" and "Pride and Prejudice"), and Vincent Cassel ("Black Swan") appears as another potential influence on the famous psychologists.

"A Dangerous Method" doesn't have a U.S. release date yet but is scheduled to make its debut at the Venice Film Festival in late August/early September.

Box office potential:

Though Cronenberg is a respected director, his movies are often too dark to reach mainstream audiences; something seen with both "A History of Violence" and "Eastern Promises."

A lot will depend on how much critical support "A Dangerous Method" can gather and whether or not distributor Sony Classics can successfully market it as an awards contender.

"A Dangerous Method" will likely launch at the end of 2011 in the U.S. on a limited basis and look to expand slowly to attract its intended adult demographic through positive word-of-mouth.

New Trailer for ‘A Dangerous Method’ with Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen Arrives

by Chris Ullrich, Jun 23 2011

Historical dramas are often hit or miss. Sure, history can be very interesting but it also can, at times, be rather dry and boring. Fortunately, when you combine the talents of actors Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender, Kiera Knightly and director David Cronenberg, history suddenly becomes a lot more interesting.

Now, as if to prove my point, a new international trailer is for Cronenberg’s upcoming film A Dangerous Method has arrived. As I said, Cronenberg is directing from a screenplay adapted by writer Christopher Hampton from his 2002 stage play The Talking Cure.

The film takes place right before World War I and follows the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung (Fassbender), his mentor Sigmund Freud (Mortensen), and Sabina Spielrein (Knightly), the troubled but beautiful young woman who comes between them. Of course, drama ensues. But good, edgy drama.

Check out the trailer after the jump. A Dangerous Method hits theaters later this year.

Keira Knightly takes her Freudian slip off for a good spanking
June 23 2011

Now we all know that Sigmund Freud, the famous psychiatrist and father of modern psychiatry was perhaps a bit obsessed with sex, but a new film starring Keira Knightley shows how his theories on childhood and suppressed sexual desires rubs off (excuse the pun) on his pupils and fellow colleagues.

A Dangerous Method from director David Cronenberg, who also directed Crash, Dead Ringers and The Dead Zone, collaborates with Viggo Mortensen for the their third consecutive collaboration after A History Of Violence and Eastern Promises.

Set in the 1900's Viggo Mortensen plays Sigmund Freud and Michael Fassbender plays one of his proteges while Kiera Knightly plays the beautiful Russian patient with a penchant for being spanked, who comes between them.

Stills released from the film show Knightley being spanked in a corset by her psychiatrist Carl Jung with whom she embarks on a passionate affair after he convinces her to explore her repressed sexual desires of being beaten by a man after she endured physical abuse from her Father as a child.

The film is based on a true story about how Jung and Freud gave birth to the discipline of psychoanalysis whilst getting caught up in a love triangle. The psychiatrists couch has never sounded so kinky!

A Dangerous Method has been adapted from Christopher Hampton's screenplay The Talking Cure and is set to be released in February 2012.

Keira Knightley Dangerous in 'Dangerous Method' Trailer (watch!)
By TheImproper, June 23rd, 2011

Keira Knightley gives what could be an Oscar winning performance in David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method,” a visually erotic film about the classic meeting between Sigmund Freud and rival shrink Carl Jung.

Sony Pictures Classics released the first international trailer today (June 23), and Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender and Vincent Cassel add their talents to the incredible story of the early days of psychoanalysis.

Of course, many of Freud’s observations about human nature have been widely discredited, but during his era his theories about behavior were groundbreaking.

Check out the movie stills; click to enlarge.

Based on the 1993 non-fiction book “A Most Dangerous Method” by John Kerr, the film is the third consecutive collaboration between Cronenberg and Mortensen.

It set on the eve of World War I, when psychiatrists Jung (Fassbender) and mentor Freud (Mortensen) collaborate on the case of Sabina Spielrein (Knightley), a beautiful but troubled young woman who is seriously sexually repressed and mentally ill.

Sarah Gadon also stars as Emma Jung, who must compete for her husbands affections has he becomes obsessed and ultimately invovled with Spielrein.

The film looks like it could be as dark and erotic as “Black Swan.” Natalie Portman won the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of a disturbed ballet dancer.

Check it out below.
