Three new clips from David Cronenberg‘s A Dangerous Method have gone online. The movie focuses on the real-life relationship between doctors Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and the complicated patient between them (Keira Knightley). These clips show the growing relationships between the characters, but they also demonstrate the sterile conversations between the characters. All emotions are house in clinical terms, which is the point, but I found it created too much distance between the audience and the characters.
Hit the jump to check out the clips. A Dangerous Method opens in limited release on November 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for A Dangerous Method:
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.
