Freud and Jung are arguably the most entertaining psychologists, as well as some of the most recognized names in the field of psychology. David Cronenberg (A History of Violence, Eastern Promises) directs A Dangerous Method, a movie about these two legendary men.
The film examines the real life event of Dr Jung and Freud meeting and how psychoanalysis emerged from this meeting and their relationship. It is based on the non-fiction book by Kerr, A Most Dangerous Method: the story of Jung, Freud and Sabina Spielrein. The movie features Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings) as Sigmund Freud, Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) as Carl Jung and Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Carribean, A Dangerous Method) as Sabina Spielrein.
This movie is guaranteed to be as interesting as it is dramatic, and will be a must watch for those of you who enjoy their intriguing dramas, especially given that it is based on real life events.
