I had to be slightly persuaded (over my choice Carnage), but tonight I finally saw A Dangerous Method. And let me tell you ladies and gentleman, we got a hot one. The acting by the trio led by Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortenson and Michael Fassbender was top notch. Viggo was the only one to get a Golden Globe nomination and I’m not sure who will, if any, get Oscar nods, but they all deserve them, in my opinion. I never really liked Keira before this movie. She was to me to Natalie Portman, as Glenn Close is to Merryl Streep. But she proved to be quite the talented actress in this film.
The movie is based on truth, and focuses on the relationship between two of the most prolific pyschologists ever, Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, and the crazy-but-turns-out-to-be-pretty-brilliant woman that comes between them. in not necessarily the way you think.
I loved this movie and the connection I felt to it in many ways. From the topics of sex to pyschotherapy, it had my interest from start to finish.
