A Dangerous Method

Cronenberg gets classy with the Blu-ray release of his new period drama

David Cronenberg steps away from the world of body horror for a more ‘classy’ and cerebral kind of cinema with this study of the formative years of psychoanalysis. While this may disappoint some fans, those with a more open mind will find a fascinating movie powered by Keira Knightley’s ferocious performance as the disturbed young woman who falls under the spell of Michael Fassbender’s Carl Jung.

With it’s luscious AVC 1.85:1 1080p visuals and DTS-HD MA 5.1 this Blu-ray release certainly scores highly when it comes to AV performance. Indeed, the only real disappointment are the minimal extras – just the 8-minute The Making of A Dangerous Method featurette and an audio commentary from Cronenberg.
