Funny Games is Not for You

Posted in Film by TASTE & POWER on March 14, 2008

Funny Games will fuck with your mind. There are no surprises though. You know from about 20 minutes deep exactly whats going to happen. Nonetheless watching the thing is tortuous, because you’ve made a choice to see this thing, to keep watching knowing very well whats coming, and why? The implication is inevitably that, deep down, you’re just as sick and twisted as these two little shits that have brought all this horror onto an “innocent” family. This is not an easy realization to come to terms with.  You may want to look away. Walk out even. Many will.

Michael Haneke shocks audiences nationwide, today, with his Americanized remake of his own German language original.
