Boffo corner: Trailer for David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method


21st June 2011

Look at us, talking about serious films like a proper, respected publication. This time it's David Cronenberg's new film, A Dangerous Method. Don't worry, it has spanking in it too.

Gawd love David Cronenberg - he's the David Lynch you don't have to pretend you like. Also, he makes a bloody good lager. (*pauses for laughter*) But seriously folks, take a gander at the first trailer for Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method, which stars Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender as Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung respectively. Interesting. (*strokes chin*) To be honest, I'm just happy this is played straight and they aren't fighting vampires or something.

While one small alarm bell does ring in the trailer (Keira Knightley doing an accent is always cause for concern), you have to admit it looks pretty boss. The cast is top notch (Vincent Cassell + beard = MEGA SLEAZE) and the concept is fascinating, if lacking a little mass appeal. Maybe put Carl Jung in a helmet and give Sigmund Freud a naked fight scene and see what that does for its box-office.
