On some levels it works really well, but on others it appears plan revisionist. As if the early psycho therapeutic world was only composed of Freud and Jung. In reality there was a multi-tussle of dynamics between Adler, Jones, Freud, Ferenczi, Jung, Stekel, Rank, Reich and numerous others.

Otto Gross gets a look in, but only to highlight a counterpoint to the more considered Jung. Gross requested the need for more promiscuity. In terms of a bio pic, the Grand daddy of the drop out, deserves a film all to himself and the snap shot in this film does not do him justice.

Otto Gross, the son of Hans Gross, was the perfect child, hammered into submission into being a carbon copy of Daddy. He took to the Adlerian polarity, shifting from inferiority to superiority and rebelled against the dominating values. As a result he ignited the first stirrings of an emancipation for all.

Unfortunately it was the expense of his own wife and children. However trapped within a Victorian/Wilhelmine straightjacket, there were few compass bearings for an individual revolt against all values. Drawing on Stirner, Nietzsche and Bachofen he began to usher in a more individual view. Meanwhile as he sped away from Freud he also fought out a father-son battle. The upshot was he began to self medicate for being overpowered.

A theme that is only lightly touched upon in the film. For those who are interested it is well worth looking him up, a forgotten therapist who worked to influence, Eric Muhsam and Gustav Landauer, touching Kafka, DH Lawrence, Reich and the whole field of sexual liberation.

Jung is portrayed well by Fassbinder, but he lacks a dynamic, a will to power.

Although it is well mounted, I found 'A Dangerous Method' to be disappointing, particularly in view of the high calibre of the cast. I was expecting more confrontational from this Freud vs. Jung period piece, It may improve on a second viewing but it seemed to lack that certain chemistry needed to make it work.

By Antenna TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Feb. 2012
Format: DVD
Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" is mainly about the relationship between two early giants of psychoanalysis, Freud and Jung, played by Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbinder . This is captured in some witty, often humorous and well-acted scenes which made me want to find out more about both the men and their theories. Freud hopes that Jung, almost two decades his junior, will carry on the torch of his controversial ideas on the sexual basis of mental disorder, but cannot tolerate Jung's tendency to follow his own independent line, including telepathy and psychic powers, which Freud finds simply potty, not to mention the irritation of having his authority challenged.

A further complication is Jung's treatment with his new "talking cure" of the hysterical young Russian Jewess Sabina Spielrein, who recovers to become a celebrated psychoanalyst in her own right, but not before providing a fatal attraction for Jung.

The photography is beautiful, with many scenes of Swiss lakes or striking statues against a background of Viennese palaces. The large amount of "walking and talking" reflects the fact this film is based on a stage play by the ubiquitous Christopher Hampton. I also liked the attention to the period detail of the early 1900s: Jung's wealthy wife works on her embroidery the day after giving birth to her first child, while a buxom wet nurse suckles the infant. Freud's identification with Spielrein, as a Jew, and growing awareness of Jung as an Aryan, foreshadows the horrors of the Holocaust.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the story of the relationship between three of the founders of psychoanalysis: Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung and Sabina Naftulovna Speilrein.

Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightly) was born in the Russian district of Rostov-on-Don on 7 November 1885. She was "committed" to Zurich's "Burgholzi Psychiatric Clinic" by her Uncle where she came under the "care" of Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender). Jung was mentored by Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen).

The film progresses at a very slow pace, and it took all my determination not to press the fast forward button. You also have to remember that the subject matter can be somewhat dry, even for me and it's my specialist subject.

Otto Gross (Vincent Cassel) is added to the mix, though briefly. Other than the debauched Gross giving Jung "permission" to have an extra marital affair, there appears to be no reason for his inclusion. There was much more to Gross than portrayed.

I am not a fan of Michael Fassbender (Prometheus, X-Men: First Class) but his portrayal of Jung is excellent, and once you get over the fluctuating accent of Keira Knightly (Atonement) - it fluctuates between an attempted Russian to American and back (not bad for a UK born woman) - she gives an interesting performance as Speilrein. The tour-de-force is from Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy,
