David Cronenberg, A Dangerous Method, and Film Weekly

by Toby Woollaston

A new Film Weekly podcast is out.  This week Jason Solomons visits the last house of Dr Sigmund Freud for a session with A Dangerous Method’s Viggo Mortensen.  You can listen to it here.  I’m quite a fan of David Cronenberg’s work, notibly Existenze, Spider, A History of Violence, and Eastern Promises.  These are superb films.  Cronenberg’s latest film, A Dangerous Method, is released in New Zealand April 26, and I am really looking forward to it.  From what I gather it is a lot more staid than his previous work, but it has a fantastic cast and psychonanalysis is a theme that Cronenberg works in and around so well.
