Was to cinema what Albert Camus was to litterature. Imagine L'Etranger directed by Antonioni and starring Alain Delon, circa 1965.

But since that never happened L'Avventura, L'Eclisse & Blow-Up are personal favourites.
I pretty much love all his films, especially the quirky non-Hollywood ones like The Tenant, Bitter Moon, What? and Frantic.
This guy puts the action in drama and drama in action! The 4th Man and RoboCop are my faves.
Was way ahead of his time when he started the psychological warfare back in 1989 with The Ninth Continent. Today we see these type of films everywhere, though not nearly as effective as when the name Haneke appears on the screen!

The Ninth Continent, Benny's Video & Funny Games. The Castle is also a guilty pleasure: the best Kafka filmatisation if you ask me!
Average listal rating (208 ratings) 8.8 IMDB Rating 0
Brought surrealism out of the abstract! Love that dinner flick and Tristana.
He's written some really quirky, original and disturbing stuff without making any excuses! And that's the way it should be.

Les Valseuses is my favourite.

No other diretor has milked off the spirit of the rad 60's and the bleak 70's as well as Fereri did in his prime! Feminism, male chauvinism, bourgeois pigs, end of humanity... you name it this guy has done it!

The Last Woman is Ferreri at his best, with Depardieu giving the performance of his lifetime. Sadly this film remains unreleased. I managed to get it off the internet, recorded from TV, dubbed to German with English subtitles. Needless to say, it still had the desired impact.
Third Part of the Night & Possession
Brat I & II, Of Freaks and Men
Suspiria, Inferno & Deep Red
I love his character studies of the male psyche.

The Comfort of Strangers, Affliction, Taxi Driver, Blue Collar and Obsession and among my favourites!

Directors who have had a singificant impact on me.
