To the Freudian Thinkers:
In my search for a place for the Freaks and Thinkers to show films to discuss, I finally have taken several peoples advice and decided to go public. We will be watching the film A Dangerous Method at the Jimmie B Keel library in Carrollwood. It is near the Cultural Center and is open on Saturday and I have applied to show this film on that day, so I think it is a go. I will be calling for us to go after the film to a nice place to talk about everything somewhere nearby, probably on Dale Mabry. Hopefully this strategy will work out and we can meet there several times in the near future when actual film meetups have not been scheduled for a while
And to meet the needs for a post film discussion, I have reserved the big room at Grille One Sixteen at 15405 North Dale Mabry (about 3/4 of a mile from the Library) for our post film discussion for those who want to come. At this time we have over 30 coming to the viewing (between three different groups) and maybe 20 to 25 wanting to participate in the discussion. Dr Jon Green will be leading the film discussion and any other psychologists (professional or amateur) in the room can chime in as well.
Everyone pretty much has seen this if they wanted to, but for those who haven't we will have the viewing. Some may decide just to come for the discussion, but this will be figured out in a week or so after all of my film festivalling is over.
If anyone doesn't know it yet, this is a narrative film based on a stage play about the beginning days of psychoanalysis. It is directed by one of my favorites, David Cronenberg, who has specialized in out there horror films and but really dials it back on this one. The film is an exploration of the different views of these icons as they worked out the early moments of opening up the human mind to explorations intent on helping out the troubled while creating an entirely new branch of philosophy that have gone so many places since then that many philosophers are askance to think it is philosophy. I do and I want to talk about it afterwards.
