A Dangerous Method (Cronenberg, 2011) - ZFF 2011
An account of CG Jungs kinky relation to his patient Sabina Spielrain
Didn't like the whole thing, unfortunately. Too stuck in reality, and should get more inspiration from dreams. Maybe the red book as visual and other reference might have propelled Cronenberg completely into director's olymp. Problem with adaptation from theater, too much text, barely any action, most of the imagery in the second part is voice-overed. Freud although very well acted seems strangely detached, as does Jung (necessarily). Fell into historical accuracy trap. Need to avoid.
