ClearPlay In Action!Some frank discussions of sex are cut in the ClearPlayed version,as are several explicit sensual scenes. Kids won’t have the patience for this largely internal story. Many adults won’t, either. I found it strangely intoxicating.
So what’s the analysis of this Method, doctor?…Although A Dangerous Method dwells on dreams and the mind, it is very grounded in the everyday, peculiar for a Cronenberg movie. Talkie and dialogue–heavy, but always with a penchant for symbolism: Characters represent the ego, id and superego in a way that is still satisfying … if you’re a big fan of Psychology Today. Fortunately, the movie rental is a bargain, unlike $100–per–hour with a real doctor.
