Yes sir, that's the one.

On the eve of World War I, Zurich and Vienna are the setting for a dark tale of sexual and intellectual discovery. Drawn from true-life events, A DANGEROUS METHOD explores the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung, his mentor Sigmund Freud and Sabina Spielrein, the beautiful but disturbed young woman who comes between them. Sensuality, ambition and deceit set the scene for the pivotal moment when Jung, Freud and Sabina come together and split apart, forever changing the face of modern thought.

An impressive cast with Keira Knightley, Michael Fassbender, Viggo Mortensen, Vincent Cassel and Sarah Gadon. Directed by David Cronenberg. Music by Howard Shore. Based on a book A Most Dangerous Method written by John Kerr (1994) and a play by Christopher Hampton who also did the screenplay for the movie.

First off this is unlike anything I've seen Cronenberg do. He plays it fairly straightforward and of course the story is dialog driven. Like most people I have a basic understanding of who Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud were and their importance in psychoanalysis however I knew nothing at all about Sabina Spielrein who was important in her own right.

I had this film in my Netflix queue for quite a while and finally got around to watching it this past week. I'm sorry I put it off for so long. It's a really interesting movie with great acting but the subject matter was not going to have audiences flocking to see it and the movie only had a limited domestic release. Recommended. 8/10.

Another period "shrink" film: I remember liking When Nietzsche Wept (2007) , although once only so far.

In particular, Katheryn Winnick seemed like a cutie, with a "Scarlett Johansson's big sister" sort of appeal. She does a lot of TV.

I know how much people here love orchestral music challenges...

This should be easy because it was featured in a film well-know in these parts.

Chariots of Fire - 1981. I only watched this once when it first came out and for some reason it never struck a responsive chord with me. The music is iconic and was played endlessly until one was sick of it. Someday I may revisit the title but it's not high on my bucket list.

Correct! 1948. I came across this title on the new Warner Archive streaming service. Didn't recall ever seeing this before so I thought with Garland and Kelly it must be good. Vincente Minnelli directing. Cole Porter songs. I wasn't into this film for very long before I began to notice pacing and story problems, basically too much talking and not enough singing and dancing. Garland was battling prescription drug problems at the time, missing 99 of the 135 shooting days. Good thing she was married to the director although they divorced a few years later.

Trivia piece - at the conclusion of the movie Kelly and Garland do a clown act singing and dancing to Be a Clown which sounded very familiar. It would later be plagiarized in Singin' in the Rain as Make Em Laugh. Cole Porter did not complain since both movies were made by MGM.

You mean people don't love orchestral musical challenges?

Hints:

  • Many people probably think this is by Jerry Goldsmith, but it isn't.
  • You have to wait for the credits to hear it.
  • Used without permission by the filmmakers.
  • John Williams said it was his inspiration for the E.T. score (which I'm not remembering at the moment)

He was wonderful. I still remember a review I read in the day of A Christmas Story. Said he was over the top, and gave the movie a middling review. I had read Jean Shepherd extensively, as well as seeing his narrated works on PBS, so was a big fan of the movie (I got it.) Anyone familiar with Jean would know that his stuff was often displayed through the prism of memory, from the POV of a child. McGavin was perfect.

Bill Pullman - Zero Effect?

Assuming this is the movie I haven't seen it in years. You can watch this streaming from VUDU and Amazon Instant but strangely Netflix does not rent it at the moment.

I have may another look soon but I do remember it was kind of quirky.
