A Dangerous Method

  • S2E5

  • June 4th 2020

Recorded in time for Freud’s 164th birthday, Hugh and Jenna explore the 2011 film, A Dangerous Method, directed by David Cronenberg, written by Christopher Hampton, and starring Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, and Michael Fassbender.

Hugh and Jenna discuss the birth and development of psychoanalysis and other psychological methods, though the relationships between the founders, Jung, Freud, and Spielrein.

This brings the questions which language films based in non-English speaking countries should be spoken. And Jenna fangirls a little bit over Freud’s couch
