55th BFI London Film Festival: A Dangerous Method



Today, my experience of this year's London Film Festival closed with A Dangerous Method, David Cronenberg's compelling look at the early days of psychoanalysis. It is here:

My review of this film will be short and sweet. I had been spoilt by seeing the stage play that this film is based on, The Talking Cure, at the National in 2003. It starred Ralph Fiennes as Carl Jung. Compared to the National's version, this film is a very pale imitation. However, given that, as you all know, I am a) obsessed with the National Theatre and b) a HUGE Ralph Fiennes fan, me saying that was probably inevitable! I think I should have given the film a miss and gone to see the National's version again at the Archive for free!
