Benny's Video (1992)

3 years, 4 months ago at Jan 27 10:22

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

Before 'Funny Games', Mickael Haneke has directed this gem. It is not as great as 'Funny games' but it is still very good. It is very bleak and chilling but so thoughtfull. The small boy playing the lead character gives an amazing perfomance (he is one of the leads in 'Funny games' aswell). It is not an easy watch but it is definitely worth a look.

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"

"28.06.11 Phsycopatic kid named Benny is a film geek and is also into filming with his cameras. The video he usually watches is violent shooting or fast car's, he also has this thing for a video he filmed of a pig that gets slaughtered. The movie had real bad quality but it was ok because I think it is a low budget film. "
