  • German-born, Irish-raised actor Michael Fassbender first caught many viewers' attention with the role of Sergeant Burton Pat on the HBO-produced WWII series Band of Brothers in 2001. He would make waves again with roles on a number of popular British TV series, like Murphy's Law and Hex, but Fassbender would ingrain himself in the minds of American audiences when he was cast in the role of Spartan warrior Stelios in the 2006 blockbuster 300, even uttering the iconic line "Then we will fight in the shade." Fassbender would continue to find exciting roles in film, appearing in movies like the critically acclaimed Hunger, and Quentin Tarantino's World War II epic Inglourious Basterds. He quickly became one of the most sought-after and respected young actors in the business earning rave reviews in 2011 for his work as a sex-addict in Shame, and that same year played Magneto in the successful X-Men prequel. The next year he continued to work with revered directors, playing an assassin in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, and landing a lead role in Ridley Scott's sci-fi summer film Prometheus.In 2013, he re-teamed with his Hunger and Shame director Steve McQueen for 12 Years a Slave, earning Fassbender his first Academy Award nomination, for Best Supporting Actor. He reprised his role of Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014. The following year, he tackled "the Scottish play," playing Lord Macbeth opposite Marion Cotillard's Lady Macbeth, and earned rave reviews (and a second Oscar nomination) playing Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

[to Vickers] Cup of tea, mum?

Carl Jung
My love for you was the most important thing in my life. For better or worse, it made me understand who I am.
Carl Jung
[looking at her pregnant belly] He should be mine.
Carl Jung
He should be mine.
Sabina Spielrein
Yes.
Carl Jung
Sometimes you have to do something unforgivable just to be able to go on living. [we see Sabina crying as she leaves in a coach, then we see Jung sitting emotionally withdrawn in his backyard]
Carl Jung
Sometimes you have to do something unforgivable just to be able to go on living.
Carl Jung
If I may say so, dear Professor, you make the mistake of treating your friends like patients. This enables you to reduce them into the level of children, so that their only choice is to become obsequious non-entities, or bullying enforces of the parting line. While you sit on the mountain top, the infallible father figure, and nobody dares to pluck you by the beard and say, think about your behavior, and then decide which one of us is the neurotic. I speak as a friend.
Carl Jung
Listen, I made a stupid mistake.
Sabina Spielrein
Is that what it was?
Carl Jung
I broke one of the elementary rules of my profession,I'm your doctor! And I believe I did you some good. I can't forgive myself for overstepping the mark. I should have known that if I gave you what you wanted, you wouldn't be able to help wanting me.
Carl Jung
I broke one of the elementary rules of my profession, I'm your doctor! And I believe I did you some good. I can't forgive myself for overstepping the mark. I should have known that if I gave you what you wanted, you wouldn't be able to help wanting me.
Carl Jung
There are so many mysteries, so much further to go.
Sigmund Freud
Please, we can't be too careful! We can't afford to wonder into these speculative areas. Telepathy! Singing bookcases! Fairies at the bottom of the garden. It won't do! It won't do.
Sigmund Freud
Pity, I should never have sent Otto Gross to you. I blame myself.
Carl Jung
Well I'm very grateful you did. All those provocative discussions helped crystallize my thinking.
Carl Jung
You think Freud's right? You think that all neurosis is a exclusively sexual origin?
Otto Gross
I think Freud's obsession with sex probably has a great deal to do with the fact that he never gets any.
Carl Jung
You could be right.
Carl Jung
It's a complete waste of my time. Writing prescriptions for Athlete's Foot and examining cocks from morning till night.
Emma Jung
I'm sad for you too.
Carl Jung
It's not good for me. It's not good for my patients.
Sigmund Freud
Is she a virgin?
Carl Jung
Yes, certainly.
Sigmund Freud
Mm.
Carl Jung
Almost certainly.
Carl Jung
No. Certainly.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto
What's the last thing you remember?

i've a strange feeling with regard to you, as if i had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly knotted to a similar string in you. and if you were to leave, i'm afraid that cord of communion would snap.

David
Why do you think your people made me?
Charlie Holloway
We made ya 'cause we could.
David
Can you imagine how disappointing it would be for you to hear the same thing from your creator?
David
The answer is irrelevant. Does it matter why they changed their minds?
Elizabeth Shaw
Yes. Yes it does.
Fifield
I don't understand.
David
Well... I guess that's because I'm a human being, and you're a robot.
David
But, may I ask what you hope to achieve by going there?
Elizabeth Shaw
They created us then they tried to kill us. They changed their minds. I deserve to know why.
Elizabeth Shaw

Otto Gross
I can't understand what you're waiting for. Just take her to some secluded spot and thrush her to within an inch of her life. That's clearly what she wants. How can you deny her such a simple pleasure?
Carl Jung
Pleasure's never simple, as you very well know.
Otto Gross
It is. Of course it is. Until we decide to complicate it. What my father call maturity, what I call surrender
Carl Jung
Surrender for me would be to give in to these urges.
Otto Gross
Then surrender. It doesn't matter what you call it, as long as you don't let the experience escape. That's my prescription.

Otto Gross
It seems to me the measure of the true perversity of the human race, that one of us have very few have lively pleasurable image of the subject of so much hysteria and impression.
Carl Jung
But not to repress yourself is to unleash all kinds of dangerous and destructive forces.
Otto Gross
Our job is to make our patients capable of feeling.
Carl Jung
I've heard it said that you helped one of your patients to kill herself.
Otto Gross
She was reasonably suicidal, I just explained how she could do it without watching it. Then I asked her is she didn't prefer the idea of becoming my lover. She opted for both.
Carl Jung
That can't be what we want for our patients.
Sigmund Freud
Freedom is freedom.
Carl Jung
Explain this analogy made between the sexes, the death instinct.
Sabina Spielrein
Professor Freud claims that the sexual drive arises from a simple urge towards pleasure. If he's right, the question is why is this urge so often successfully repressed?
Carl Jung
You used to have a theory involving the impulse towards destruction, self destruction. Losing oneself.
Sabina Spielrein
Suppose we think of sexuality as futile, losing oneself as you say, but losing oneself in the other. In other words, destroying ones own individuality. Wouldn't the ego in self defense automatically resist the impulse?
Carl Jung
You mean for selfish not for social reasons?
Sabina Spielrein
Yes. I'm saying that perhaps true sexuality demands the destruction of the ego.
Carl Jung
In other words, the opposite of what Freud propose
Carl Jung
In other words, the opposite of what Freud propose.
David
Elizabeth, are you there?
Elizabeth Shaw
Yes I'm here...
David
Run, Elizabeth, run fast! He's coming after you!
David
We can go back to where we came from...
Elizabeth Shaw
I don't want go to back to where we came from. I want to go where they came from. You think you can do that, David?
Elizabeth Shaw
I don't want to go back where we're from. I want to go where THEY came from.
David
Yes, I believe I can. May I ask what you hope to achieve by going there?
David
And then what? What would you do there?
Elizabeth Shaw
They created us. Then they tried to kill us. They changed their minds. I deserve to know why.
Elizabeth Shaw
I want to know why they created us humans, then suddenly decided to destroy us.
David
The answer is irrelevant. It doesn't matter why they changed their minds.
David
Why do you wanna know the truth?
Elizabeth Shaw
Yes - yes, it does.
Elizabeth Shaw
Because I deserve to know the truth. you would never understand. You're a robot.
David
I don't understand.
Elizabeth Shaw
Well I guess that's because I'm a human being, and you're a robot.

David
I didn't think you had it in you. Poor choice of words.
David
The trick is, not minding it hurts.
Meredith Vickers
