Cronenberg gets psychological in A Dangerous Method

Director David Cronenberg's latest movie, A Dangerous Method, is set to open in New York and Los Angeles on November 23rd. The impressive cast includes Keira Knightly, Michael Fassbender , Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel in a story that focuses on the relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud and one of their patients. It may seem a far cry from the director's earlier work such as Shivers and Videodrome, but his work has evolved over the years with movies such as A History of Violence still packing one hell of a punch, so I am sure this will not be a run-of-the-mill period piece. Time will tell, although I am liking what I see from the trailer. In the meantime I have a shedload of stills and the official trailer to share with you.

Director: David Cronenberg
Writer: Christopher Hampton
Cast: Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender, Sarah Gadon, Vincent Cassel
Runtime: 99 minutes
Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Carl 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 (Viggo Mortensen). Both men fall under Sabina's spell.

This has got "cult-classic" written all over it (just like all of Cronenbergs films), i just wish he`d make a couple more films like his early science-fiction and horror movies before he retires from film-making, after all hes pushing 70 now so he might only make another 3 or 4 movies of note over the next 10 years (if that), all his films are brilliant in one way or another but its just that i still prefer "horror and special effects-Cronenberg" to "relatively straightforward drama-Cronenberg", as it were.
