Stirerite and Freudian psychoanalyst, Otto Gross, is portrayed in the movie called "A Dangerous Method".
I haven't seen the movie (nor do I intend to), but I hear the few scenes he is in he steals, so that's kind of cool I guess even if the dude was nutter butters.

Rather an unclear thread in terms of direction don't you think?
Anyway, I liked the movie. It was more of a movie about Jung's personal life more than anything else. I didn't think too much about the Gross character (beyond the fact that he was a total player). I might have liked the movie a little more if I found Keira Knightley really attractive... What? Spoilers? Definitely not.
Also Jung totally looks like Hayek in the movie. Just saying.
Fine: title changed to "Strinerite portrayed in film", and I guess he wasn't as scene stealing as I thought
are you happy now that you rained on my parade twice in one thread? This is going in my diary.
I actully heard the flick was filled with Jungian / Freudian archtypes and played as a type of Psychoanalytic "parable" ex: Freud = Superego, Jung = Ego, Gross = Id
"are you happy now that you rained on my parade twice in one thread? This is going in my diary."
...Wait a sec!
Keira Knightly not attractive! I've gone from writing about you in my diary to putting you on my list. You're asking for Trouble, with a capital "T".
And what the hell am I doing thinking about Hayek, Stirner and Gross while you make such a comment about "The Duchess of Devonshire" (as portrayed in "The Duchess"). This thread deserves some serious psychoanalysis.
Gross was played by Vincent Cassel in the movie, who pretty much always steals the scenes he's in.
I don't recall if Gross's influences are mentioned - perhaps Stirner was name-checked, and I missed it - but he's mostly portrayed as a gluttonous libertine.
I prefer my women a little more... Foxy...
At first I thought you were saying that in the scenes that Gross is portrayed in, he actually commits theft (like some sort of Hollywood stab at Stirner's "egoist anarchism").
Well gross was a bit of a gluttonous libertine.
That said I wouldn't expect Stirner's name to be name dropped - I think mentioning obscure philosophers out thf the blue would lead to some confusion with an audience (you could probably name more common names like Nietzsche or de Sade if it serves a plot point) - I just found it interesting a very obvious and self confessed Stirnerite was portrayed.
Frankly, I was a bit shocked Otto Gross was in the movie, I always thought he was really obscure
