One of the best movies ever made

To be honest, I'm usually not really a fan of psychopath/serial killer movies. I mean, they are most of the time entertaining but they are never really great, at least, that’s my opinion but this movie is the exception. Indeed, I thought was so thoughtful , complex and really spellbinding to watch. I saw it again not so long ago and once again, it completely blew my mind. One thing I found real... read more

Michael Haneke once stated that the intention behind 'Funny Games' was that, if you couldn't watch it all the way through, then you didn't need to.

I'm not sure about that. I don't think I like the idea that a film director knows better than I do what I need to watch, or what I don't need to watch. I did watch 'Funny Games' all the way through, and it's a movie about two guys who to... read more

Irritating and Unwatchable.

Let me be honest here, i'm not familiar with the director, but if this is what he usually do? then i will never watch another movie of him.

The story goes like this: two guys enters a family vacations home, kill their dog, kick the father on the leg, so he can't walk and start asking some stupid question just to irritate the viewer, the two guys look very normal and polite, they use... read more

"February 7th Directed by: Michael Haneke Having seen the remake, and now seeing the original I don't really understand why there is a remake. It really is the exact same movie. The only discernible difference is the original has better acting. Despite the fact that this should just be objectively better, I hesitate to give this a 8/10 like I have the remake, and I think it's just because I've already seen this movie twice. Or maybe it's because watching movies with David always makes me view t"

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

" Cast : Arno Frisch, Ulrich Mühe What was it about? Two psychotic young men take a mother, father, and son hostage in their vacation cabin and force them to play sadistic "games" with one another for their own amusement. My two cents: This movie had a huge impact on me and it is still, after all these years, one of my all-time favorites. I'm usually not really a fan of psychopath/serial killer movies. I mean, they are most of the time entertaining but they are never really great, at least,"

"Funny Games" is my least favorite of Michael Haneke. you should try his other films.

First of all, it is all a matter of taste and this movie is not for everyone. However, I don't think you should judge the viewers that did like this movie. Indeed, personally, I really loved this movi
