“A special interest educational film.”
Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz
Stephen Segaller directs this 1957 no-frills interview of the illustrious Swiss psychologistDr. Carl Gustav Jung by University of Houston psychology professor Dr. Richard L. Evans.For those with their thinking caps on, this is a special interest educational film where Dr. Evans asks Jung about archetypes, Freud, extroverts and introverts, intuition, dreams, the study of the unconscious, the difference between ego and the self, the inner world of fantasies as a means of truth and the famous psychologist’s experiences with some interesting patients.If the viewer has no interest in psychology and wants to keep it that way, he/she should avoid this academic documentary.Jung followers and seekers of knowledge should eat up the chance to see such a legendary historical figure answer these basic questions about his invaluable research.
