“Telluride 2011: Sex and Psychoanalysis in ‘Shame’ and ‘A Dangerous Method’
Breakout star of 2011 Michael Fassbender explores our primal pain in two of the fall’s most intriguing films.
Well, this is Michael Fassbender’s year. First the mainstream punch of X-Men: First Class, then Shame and A Dangerous Method, which both played the Venice and Telluride film festivals this weekend. (He also played Rochester in Jane Eyre in March.) I saw Shame and Method one after the other Sunday at Telluride, and even more striking than the skillful range of Fassbender’s performances was the confluence of ideas explored in them.” – The Hollywood Reporter.
