David Cronenberg’s “Dangerous Method” traces the shifting relationships among Carl Jung; his mentor, Sigmund Freud; and Jung’s patient, Sabina Spielrein.
S&S Comment: I’m late seeing this movie (released in 2011) but its by far the best flick I’ve watched this year. What I loved about it was the way that each of the characters properly diagnosed the flaws of the other(s) but was resistant to or incapable of seeing their own flaws even when they were accurately pointed out.
Alas, the refractory nature of the human psyche,
bestowed by evolution upon simpleton and genius alike!
