Funny Games U.S. – 2007 – Michael Haneke

10m.jpgOnce more with extreme violence, brutality and provocation Haneke carbon copies his 1997 version this time in the US. He asserts that violence in cinema is essentially an American discourse – hence the remake – the result is a kind of ‘intellectual’ Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Don’t watch Funny Games for answers or clarity or if you’re not too keen on torture and bloodletting.
