Benny's Video (1992)

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.

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (204 movies items)

"20.1 Funny Games oli pettymys ja tämä vieläkin enemmän. Haneke paneutuu tällä kertaa siihen, millaista on omaan maailmaansa sulkeutuneen teinipojan elämä. Benny tarkkailee maailmaa videokameransa kautta ja turruttaa emotionaalisen tunne-elämänsä katsomalla yhtäjaksoisesti pelkkää väkivaltaviihdettä. Elokuvan ensimmäinen puolisko on tyypillisen röyhkeää Hanekea, jossa katsoja pakotetaan seuraamaan vierestä kun Benny murhaa ikäisensä tytön ja tallettaa kaiken videonauhalle"

"Directed by: Michael Haneke 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."
