*–Yes, this is lower than I was considering while being filmed. But upon reflection, I think the movie fails on multiple fronts. As a glimpse into the history of psychoanalysis, it fails because I think I know less about psychoanalysis now than I did before going into the cinema. As a glimpse into the life of Jung, it fails because he’s such a dick I feel like I wasted my time glimpsing it. And as a cohesive narrative it fails because of the weird jumps I relate in my review. And as a triangle (of some kind) between the three main characters, it fails because Jung is not just a prick–but an out-of-left-field whackjob prick–that I wish one third of the triangle would have wandered out of the film and thus made it a lot more enjoyable. Anyway, just wanted to explain.
