Mortensen: Cronenberg was overlooked for awards...again

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Actor Viggo Mortensen said he didn't understand why director David Cronenberg was "once again" overlooked during awards season. Mortensen attended the UK premiere of "A Dangerous Method" in London on Tuesday (January 31). He plays Sigmund Freud, in the third collaboration between the actor and director Cronenberg. The two worked previously together on "Eastern Promises" and "History of Violence". "Once again David was ignored by BAFTA, by Oscar, by Golden Globes, by everyone, by Directors Guild. And I think it's really puzzling because he's recognised as one of our greatest living directors and many mediocre talents get nominated and sometimes win every year. So I don't really understand the phenomenon. I think he's a little bit ahead of his time. His movies tend to age well. His movies tend to get better with each viewing and I don't think you can say that about most movies," Mortensen told Reuters Television. The movie also stars Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung and Keira Knightley as patient-turned-lover-and-psychologist Sabina Spielrein. "A Dangerous Method" is already out in U.S. cinemas and will hit British screens on February 10.
