Product Description

Freud (1962)


 John Huston


 Charles Kaufman (screenplay), Charles Kaufman (story)


 Montgomery Clift, Susannah York, Larry Parks 
Filmed in Germany by American director John HustonFreud is a sincerely felt but overly simplistic biopic of the pioneering psychotherapist. The brooding, introspective Montgomery Clift was a curious choice for the role of Sigmund Freud; at times he looks more off the beam than some of his patients (his comic-opera Viennese accent doesn't add to the credibility). The screenplay takes the shape of a detective mystery, attempting to link various crises in Freud's private and professional life with his theoretical conclusions, most often doing so within well-staged dream sequences. Less successful are the scenes with the poor unfortunates who come to Freud for help, notably an embarrassing sequence with a young man suffering from an Oedipus complex. Freud was at one point supposed to have been scripted by existentialist playwright Jean-Paul Sartre, who gave up after he realized that the subject would require a four- or five-hour film at the very least.

  1. Freud as star 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 14th 2019

    A very fine reproduction of a film I hadn't seen for years. Zeus is the only place where you can find great old films, films that most people have forgotten about. The quality of the print was surprisingly good and the sound was terrific. Thanks Zeus. I intend to buy more.
