'A Dangerous Method'
: Nov. 23 limited
Kirk Lazarus would surely approve of Keira Knightley's decision to go "full nutjob" in the unhinged opening scene of David Cronenberg's kinky study of Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology. As the film progresses, Knightley slowly regains her sanity even as the good doctor (portrayed with spring-wound intensity by Michael Fassbender) questions his own, testing the limits of his own sexual morality and the patience of his mentor, Viggo Mortenson's Sigmund Freud. Less weird than most Cronenberg creations, but, still: pretty weird. -- Michael Hogan
