Summary

Of all the North American directors to emerge in the 1970s, few have been as consistent -- and consistently fascinating -- as Canadian auteur David Cronenberg, the man whose imagination unleashed Videodrome, The Fly, Crash and A History of Violence (to name just a few). His new film, A Dangerous Method, represents something of an origin piece in Cronenberg's universe, returning to a pivotal moment in the birth of modern psychiatry that predicts the obsession with repressed sexuality, violence and the subconscious so prevalent in his work.
