Auteur Theory

Aug 22, 2018

Of all the strange worlds Cronenberg has brought to the screen over the decades, the most surprising might be the stately parlours of turn-of-the-century Vienna. It's the 2011 historical drama A Dangerous Method. Nick and Chris are joined by author and artist Suzanne Steinberg and director and performer Mack Duncan to see if the Master of Body Horror can hold his own in the genteel world of the period costume drama. Will he plum the depths of darkest aspects of human psychology, as he has with other films, or will it be a scholarly snooze? Tune in to find out.
