A Dangerous Method: A patient (Kiera Knightley) loosens Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) from Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and the rigors of his strictly scientific method, thereby positioning herself at the center of their famous break. David Cronenberg's film is elegant and handsomely made, if never quite revelatory.

In the Land of Blood and Honey: Angelina Jolie's debut as a writer-director is a wartime love story, as well as a gritty depiction of the horrors of ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the '90s. Jolie shows great promise as a visual storyteller, creating highly dramatic, intensely emotional and vividly felt moments.
