2 renown movie directors (Aronofsky/ Cronenberg), directing one of the Hollywood "twins" in a very demanding role (Natalie Portman/ Keira Knightley), doing a movie that deal with mental troubles, with some quite explicit sex scenes, each movie with a part for Vincent Cassel… Keira might be the one getting the Oscar this year !
(>of course, the 2 movies are very very different, I was just simplifying a lot to make it more funny... but there are indeed some broad similarities...)
Cannot wait to see this movie. In my Psychology class we've talked about the two men so I'm interested in seeing how they are portrayed in the film. Also, the cast is great so I have high hopes for this movie. Keira is certainly underrated, she's one of those stars who get publicity but isn't always acknowledged for her talent. And she is quite talented.

This movie was rather disappointing considering the casting. Fassbender and Mortensen do a great job looking the part but aren't given much to work with scriptwise other than a lot of psychological banter. Keira was awful. She spent the first half of the movie badly overacting and the remainder of the film trying to find a proper Russian accent. It took me a while to figure out that she was aiming for Russian.
