a dangerous method
cronenberg rules! this is probably his less-cronenbergian movie i've seen (except maybe for some very remote parallel with dead ringers, as you might guess from the poster), but anyway, it's great! a little heavy on the theory, so you gotta know a bit to catch all the insider nuances of the dialogue, but no, not dry abstraction like cosmopolis.
anyway, all good. as for keira knightley, if you thought she was just a pretty face, you wuz wrong!
her freakouts are great, and really ugly! i love her for daring to look positively horrendous-- much respect. and yes, she can act!
you gotta catch that in motion to fully appreciate though.
anyway, like all cronenberg, not for everyone, and it might not be for cronenberg fans either, more like a merchant-ivory with nerds fucking, but there it is.
