Benny's Video (1992)

4 years ago at Jan 27 10:22
1 vote
Second part of Haneke's trilogy on violence in modern society, after "The Seventh Continent" (1989) and immediately prior to "71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance" (1994). "Benny's Video" (1992) is another twist, also devastating in the dissection of the welfare society. For the most unsettling film is Austrian director, serving radical situations, limit, raises questions that are not closed.read more

A very good movie

It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Anyway, even though it didn't completely blow me away like 'Funny Games', I thought the whole thing was still quite impressive. Indeed, it gives such a chilling vision of humanity, seriously, it is just pitch dark and utterly depressing. And yet, even though it was incredibly sad, I thought it was sti... read more

"24.1.2016 Benny katselee siantappovideota ja toteuttaa fantasiansa tappamalla tytön. Sitten syödään jogurttia, matkataan äidin kanssa Arabiaan ja mietitään, mitä todella tapahtui. Haneken näkemys väkivaltaviihdettä kuluttavasta nuoresta on varsin ironinen, kun Benny tykkää kaiken lisäksi kuunnella paheksuttavaa heavy metal -musiikkia. Jonkinlainen piikittely kukkahattutätejä kohtaan on siis aistittavissa. Eikö kukaan enää ajattele lapsia?"

A Complete review of Michael Haneke's work (11 movies items)

" Cast : Arno Frisch, Ulrich Mühe What was it about? A 14-year-old video enthusiast is so caught up in film fantasy that he can no longer relate to the real world, to such an extent that he commits murder and records an on-camera confession for his parents. My two cents: It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it. Anyway, even though it didn't completely blow me away like 'Funny Games', I thought the whole thing was still quite impressive. Indeed, it "

“Second part of Haneke's trilogy on violence in modern society, after "The Seventh Continent" (1989) and immediately prior to "71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance" (1994). "Benny's Video" (1992) is another twist, also devastating in the dissection of the welfare society. For the most unsettling film is Austrian director, serving radical situations, limit, raises questions that are not closed.

After an event of extreme gravity of a criminal act, we see the author, minor, that seems to have any consciousness of their responsibility in it. His father showed the same coolness in the time of the subsequent decision making. Meanwhile, the mother is in a kind of trance state, between nervous laughter and tears, unable to react at all. The solution is not simple but it's not really imp” read more

"First viewing Came home from vacation to find this one on the verge of leaving Netflix, so I decided to check it out. As it dragged along & I kept falling asleep, I wish I'd let it go. Were the film 45 mins. long it'd be a lot better. Unfortunately we're left to sit through drawn-out scenes of mundane moments to get to the handful of scenes that actually matter. Add to that the fact that we're given characters that mostly come across as dull & lifeless, none of which ever managed to properly e"
