12. A Dangerous Method (2011)
This film marks the third collaboration between Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen. The narrative follows the lives of Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, and Sabina Spielrein. Set at a time when psychoanalysis was in its formative days. The film explores the methods of Freud and contrasts them with Jung’s and in the middle of it is Sabina, an analyst herself – first Jung’s patient, then his lover and eventually Freud’s patient. Cronenberg expertly explores the intricacies of the human mind – something that the director has always had a fascination towards, making this film a worthy watch.
