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

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.

“REVIEW IN SPANISH.

Fue una de las primeras del aclamado director Michael Haneke, más específicamente su segundo largometraje oficial, y vaya, que gran segundo filme. Una de las cosas más destacables de este filme es como, pese a ser uno de los primeros trabajos del director, ya desde el inicio logro marcarse una identidad propia y poco accesible, Benny's Video es muy lenta, se toma un montón de tiempo para desarrollar la trama, y lo que pasa es expuesto de una manera sutil y aterrizada, no se estiliza ni hace más espectacular todo, y de hecho Haneke no tiene miedo de cansar o aburrir a grandes audiencias para poder contar su historia, y aun con esto el tipo es un experto construyendo todo lo que esta o se relaciona a este filme, por la lentitud del filme se logra hacer énfa” read more
