"A Dangerous Method" starring Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud and Michael Fassbender as Karl Jung. A really good film with three steady leads in the addition of Keira Knightley who plays the patient that comes between the two men. It is very interesting in the different methods being used by Freud and Jung regarding the treatment of their patients. A good lead in to the film mentioned below.
"Love and Other Drugs" with Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway. Loved it. The only part I have to say that I didn't like was the obligatory 'break up' scene, but I'm so willing to overlook the one part to say I loved the film. There's a bit of nudity in it but finally an adult film where I can enjoy it without a bunch of crap where both characters are so saccharin sweet the entire movie rots your teeth. Both Jamie (Gyllenhaal) and Maggie (Hathaway) where flawed and not necessarily likeable, and that was what made me love the film.
"David and Lisa" a film from 1962 starring "2001: A Space Odyssey" actor Keir Dullea and actress Janet Margolin. David has Aphenphosmphobia, which means he doesn't like to be touched by anyone. I would guess it's our version of OCD. Lisa suffers from a split personality and as such she speaks in rhyme as Lisa and doesn't speak at all as Murial, her other. The film is quite good in how it deals with the topic of mental illness, something truly unheard of for that early. The psychiatrists who treat their patients are not the stock shrinks who don't care. The care a lot. Interestingly it's the parents of the patients that don't give a crap. Very good performances by both Dullea and the late Margolin.
"Hedwig and the Angry Inch" starring John Cameron Mitchell as the lead character. An amazing film directed by Mitchell. The film by and large is about a guy who gets an operation to try to become a woman but the operation is botched, hence the 'angry inch'. The message of the film is about acceptance of who you are and what you can give. Michael Pitt also stars.
So that's what I've watched. All in all an eclectic mix.
