The 49th New York Film Festival has kicked off–or at least it has for those of us with press passes!
If you want to start your Oscar predictions, this is the festival to pay attention to. Buzz is already circulating about Michael Fassbender, who stars in Steve McQueen’s “Shame” and Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method”; Keira Knightley in “Method”; everybody in Polanski’s “Carnage,” and even Antonio Banderas as a creepy surgeon in Almodovar’s “The Skin I Live In.”
Stay tuned to LitaOnFilm as I bring you reviews of some of the most anticipated films of the year from giants like Polanski, Cronenberg, Almodovar, and more! And if you’re in town, stop by for a screening or two; the Film Society has wonderful screening venues, and is next door to the Met, the NYC Ballet and Juillliard–the heart of fine art and entertainment in New York City!
David Cronenberg, auteur of all things creepy, has finally turned his attention to Freud, the guy who made everything seem creepy in the first place. Cronenberg’s latest film, “A Dangerous Method”, will premiere this fall at the New York Film Festival.
“Method” stars perennial Cronenberg leading man Viggo Mortensen as Freud, with Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung and Keira Knightley as a patient who helps the two famous thinkers come up with the tenets of psychoanalysis. Much complication ensues when Jung falls for his patient and breaks every rule in the book to be with her.
With such disturbing classics as “Dead Ringers” and “Crash” already in his oeuvre, Cronenberg’s latest promises to glue you to your seat and make your popcorn look just a little less inviting.
