A tale that would test your sanity, or just another love affair, that was just another dangerous method?...
Don't we all love a sophisticated, but yet somewhat out of the box mistress; well "A Dangerous Method" would support that craving.. It's so odd that it just so entertaining..so mentally stimulating that this film would keep you thinking...
What's a normal relationship?
What is the true meaning of marriage, and a clandestine affair?
Why is normal so acceptable?Is it wrong to not be normal? Is it wrong for a psychiatric to say, your not normal to society standards? Why would you want to be normal anyway?
And what is the new normal???Just a series of questions, I asked myself......
I mean know, no one makes history being normal, by social standards!
"A Dangerous Method" is an intense historical fiction film; full of seduction, lust, and analytical.
This film starts off with one very interesting woman, Sabina Spielrien; entering an asylum.
This relationship questioned Dr. Carl Jung morals; monogamy, or indulgence? which lead to a disagreement between Sigmund Freud (another well established psychiatrist)... they're friendship ends over stubbornness, competitiveness, and one intelligent woman.
One man's obsession over sexual oppression, and one man's quest to the truth of happiness, and questioning he's own field of work.
"A Dangerous Method" ends with; lost loves, death, and one chain smoker.
Although, "A Dangerous Method" is full of lust, and heated disagreements; but the scenery was absolutely beautiful like a painting, stunning!. Also, the costumes where amazing; I adored the fashion.
All the actors did a superb job. Just another perfect, intense sophisticated self discovery film. If that makes sense? lol....It's a must see!
I will say, this is the type of film you have to watch over, and over to catch every conversation, every word, and even every disagreement. But, overall fantastic film.
