Cronenberg, Keira, Cassel, Viggo, and Fassbender
Did you see A History of Violence? How about Eastern Promises?
Good things happen when David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen make movies together. This time it’s A Dangerous Method. The photo call happened in Venice earlier today. Cronenberg was joined by his cast. Because of the time difference, the premiere photos will likely hit the agencies in the next couple of hours. I’ll try to get those up before I sign off for the day.
Let’s get the superficial out of the way first. Keira Knightley is back on the red carpet. This is good for gossip. She’ll be at TIFF too where A Dangerous Method is making its next stop. Cronenberg is always a big deal at TIFF. So if you’re planning your TIFF schedule, you’ll want to put a star next to this one. But you’re barely paying attention right now. Because you’re too busy enjoying Michael Fassbender. Indeed. With short hair like this, he is very, very enjoyable. You know what I can’t wait to enjoy?
Keira Knightley and Michael Fassbender. The trailer suggests they get it on, and hard. Cronenberg doesn’t usually hold back on those elements either. Fassbender plays Carl Jung. Keira is his patient Sabina Spielrein. They have an affair. Viggo’s Freud disapproves? It’s the true-ishy story of the relationship and its impact on both Jung and Freud’s teachings. The US trailer for A Dangerous Method has just been released online, set to derivative music, sure, (this kind of soundover is getting overplayed, non) but that doesn’t take away from how desperate I am to see it. Like really, really badly. Like, I’m pretty convinced already that I’ll love this film. I can’t see how it could be otherwise.
Ps. I love Vincent Cassel.
