For an interesting interview with the director of "A Dangerous Method," the film about the controversial treatment of Sabina Spielrein by Jung and Freud, go to:

Much has been written about the relationship among this trinity of the early psychoanalytic movement.  Sabina Spielrein was the first patient whom Jung treated with Freud's methods of psychoanalysis.  Hers is a compelling story--emerging from a serious mental illness to become a renowned and brilliant analyst herself.

The nature of the personal friendship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud has also received a great deal of attention over the last century.  Some say the abrupt end of the relationship and the unresolved transference-countertransference dynamics between the two men are still apparent in the gulf that separates Jung's Analytic Psychology and the (more or less) Freudian Psychoanalysis practiced today.

I am looking forward to seeing this film and will post some thoughts about it after I do.
