Funny Games U.S. (2007)

with one comment

(via thedevinecomedy)

Written and directed: Michael Haneke (remake)

“To preserve moral decency” – Paul

It was a controversial movie. A controversial movie on a personal level as well, but let’s not mention this aspect. I’ve waited for it quite long. I am a Naomi Watts fan and the original was extremely good.

Just a few words: ironic, self-ironic, aggressive and of course funny. A must! Enjoy!

Review continues but as it may contain spoilers, here is the off topic and the question:


Sports: don’t forget that we have 2 weeks of quality snooker (sorry Matthew) on Eurosport.

Food: today I had the best desert of my life. Mhmmmm!


Dear readers, please help in my pain. Could you please mention in a comment AN ANIMAL THAT HAS HAIR IN its nose?! Thanks.

– cont – Disclaimer: Maybe spoiler.

Highly ironic movie, so maybe the rumors were true and Haneke did it for fun. Good quotes and sentimental terror. The discussions with the spectator show the real social disappointment (scorn) and the dialogue about the reason (why?) covers some answers about my relationship to violence. As previously mentioned, I like movies about violence and aggression if they show us the manifestation, and afterwards I can contemplate on the “why”. Nobody is so important that he/she could not be killed. This shows us the “how”.

But not completely. This makes it interesting. It’s like cursing with “flowers, happiness and health”. The act of killing is barely shown. The road to killing is barely shown. It’s a funny game! A mainstream game, but a game.
