Michael Fassbender crosses the line with Keira Knightley in the trailer for A Dangerous Method

Jun. 21, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Who knew that the journey towards psychoanalysis was so kinky?

After it was announced that Sony Classics would be the U.S. distributor for A DANGEROUS METHOD, I knew that trailer wasn't too far off. I was right. Has the trailer caught my interest? Without a doubt, yes.

When Sabina (Keira Knightley) shows up as a patient, she is without a doubt disturbed. Hot, but disturbed. Apparently Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) sees this too. When you decide to take a patient as a mistress, it's going to cause some problems. A DANGEROUS METHOD looks like it will be a beautiful, seductive, and powerful film. Glad to finally see this trailer.

Check it out below.

"Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Jung (Michael Fassbender) takes the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) as his patient in A DANGEROUS METHOD. Jungs weapon is the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen). Both men fall under Sabinas spell."

I'll go for anything by Cronenberg or with Viggo and Fassbender is rising fast (almost seemed like a young Viggo in this trailer). Wonder if Cronenberg works his disturbing touch with violence into this.

This was awkward. Maybe it was the pacing of the trailer? Or Knightley's odd angry face, I am not sure, but I didn't groove to this.

I think it's all been said before. Cronenberg = guaranteed ticket purchase from me.

"From the Director of Eastern Promises and A History of Violence"
Yeah, we know who David Cronenberg is, fuckheads.

Even though his last few films are pretty overrated, this does look terrific.

Oh yeah! This movie looks utterly amazing! Consider my ticket bought already! It will definitely get critics and movie goers talking and I'm positive it'll get a lot of attention around Oscar season. Can't wait!

I'm calling it now

Best Picture- This looks amazing. It looks smart and fun- the kind of movie that will satiate the most arrogant movie goer and capture the attention of the more casual audience members. In a word: Perfect. I can't wait.

Looks fantastic!

One thing I took note is the weird billing. Knightley got top billing over both Viggo and Fassbender, who is billed third but seems like he's the lead.

Looks interesting

Might have to give this one a go. Always good to see Cronenberg getting back to more mature, thought-provoking, and generally more interesting films. I didn't care much for his last couple of films, but this looks like more of a return to form for him. Plus Keira Knightly looks the best she's looked since, well ever. So I may have to give it a chance, if solely for the fact that it was directed by Cronenberg.

Fassbender

Is right on the cusp of becoming a mainstream, household name, which is awesome cause he is awesome and I think this will give him that push. Looks great

Cronenberg seems to be getting better and better. I'm pumped about this and I'm interested to see how Cosmopolis turns out.

So, if there had been an extra tidbit, would it have asked us to find the Freudian Slip?

Very promising. Yet I wonder how it would have come out if Freud had been played by the more intense Waltz.

Nothing against Christoph Waltz but Viggo can definitely bring the intensity. They're both incredible actors.

oh I admire good old Viggo, the perfect Strider, but he can be so calm as to be a bit bland at times. For this role I suspect Waltz might have been more interesting, he certainly is more energetic and creepy. Viggo is just too nice, unless he gets to show his violent side.

and Knightley too it seems, whether it is successful or not can't wait to see a different kind of performance from her.
