Freud’s Last Session: Not the Last Word | by Aidan Pollock, Honi Soit

March 19th, 2024

Review of feature film, Freud's Last Session. "This tension between comfort and discomfort is the main fulcrum of the film. All of us are stereotypers, who we present at the outset is what we most believe we are. It is with comfort that we lay down our outer-layers and allow others to know us more intimately. Towards the start, we are introduced to the popular image of Freud, one of a cantankerous, cold, and neurotic man. Reversely, C.S Lewis is the British gentleman, christian, aloof, and endearing. As the day passes, both take off their defensiveness and ego like coats and hats, more alike, more human."



Freud’s Last Session: Freud and CS Lewis square off | by Rusty Wright, Washington Examiner

Review of feature film, Freud's Last Session. "Harvard psychiatrist Armand Nicholi taught a popular course on 'The Question of God,' examining Sigmund Freud’s atheism and C.S. Lewis’s faith. Now a related Sony theatrical film imagines that the two met in London shortly before Freud’s death. The result is a fascinating historical drama probing their intellectual, emotional, psychological, and spiritual development. Anthony Hopkins is masterful as Freud. Matthew Goode plays Lewis."

Review of feature film, Freud's Last Session. "Freud’s Last Session excels in asking such questions—difficult ones for both believer and agnostic. It leans into the paradoxes that its two prime characters embody, and it thus may help us see our own internal inconsistencies. But this film is more than just an intellectual exercise. It’s a gripping, entertaining story with a couple of powerhouse performances, particularly from Anthony Hopkins as Freud."

‘Freud’s Last Session’ Review: Anthony Hopkins And Matthew Goode Deliver Sterling Performances In Intelligent And Heady Drama – AFI Film Fest | by Pete Hammond, Deadline

October 27th, 2023

Praise for actors Anthony Hopkins and Matthew Goode for their performances in Freud's Last Session. "Hopkins is once again, you guessed it, awards worthy. What a complete pleasure it continues to be to watch this great actor at the top of his game. Goode is equally fine, even with the less showy role as he perfectly balances Hopkins as well as Moore, his frustrated lover."


Why Anthony Hopkins’s Whole Career Led Him to Freud’s Last Session | by David Canfield, Vanity Fair

October 26th, 2023

A dive into Anthony Hopkins's career to explain his role in Freud's Last Session. "Inevitably, these elder roles have provoked head-on confrontations with mortality, and Hopkins hasn’t shied away from the theme in his work. Yet none of those dramas can quite prepare viewers for what he brings to Freud’s Last Session, a film explicitly about preparing for the end of one’s life—and reflecting on all that came before it."
