DVD: A Dangerous Method

A David Cronenberg film about Jung (Michael Fassbender), Freud (Viggo Mortensen), and the strictly therapeutic S&M they have with a troubled young protégée (Keira Knightley) sounds like it should be, well, dangerous.

But A Dangerous Method is actually a reserved, respectable period drama. It mentions all manner of disputes between its main characters, but it doesn't bother to dramatise most of them.
