One of the best movies ever made

To be honest, I'm usually not really a fan of psychopath/serial killer movies. I mean, some of them are sometimes quite 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 fou... 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

Description: Georg and Anna, and their son Georgie, are traveling to their lakeside summer home. Upon arrival, Georg and Georgie head off to the lake for sailing while Anna prepares dinner in the kitchen. The serenity is shattered by a young man named Peter, who knocks at the door asking to borrow some eggs. The unwanted visitor is joined by Paul, a brash, arrogant young man. It soon becomes clear the pair has no intention of leaving. When Georg returns and tries to throw them out, physical violence erupts, and the family is held captive. What ensues are highly disturbing and violent games that are initiated by Paul and Peter with Georg, Ann ... (more)

"11.2. Katsoin toissapäivänä 2007 vuoden version tästä elokuvasta, ja jäi vaivaamaan todella paljon, että menikö tämä tosissaan näin. Oli siis pakko katsoa myös tämä alkuperäisversio uudestaan. Ja vaikka elokuvat olivatkin lähes identtiset, niin kyllä tämä alkuperäinen on vaan niin paljon hyytävämpi."

"7th of December, DVD Tästä oli kyllä hauskat leikit kaukana. Haneke vie äärimmilleen ihmisen sietokyvyn, vaikka suurin osa väkivallasta tapahtuukin ruudun ulkopuolella. Haneke luo onnistuneen painostavan ilmapiirin ja asetelman, jossa kolmihenkinen perhe on täysin ohjaajan armoilla. Monet elokuvan kohtauksista ovatkin hyvin ahdistavia, eikä tätä voi herkille suositella. Tästä huolimatta loput elokuvasta eivät vastanneet odotuksia. Haneke tiedostaa kyllä elokuvallaan jatkuvasti mit"

My Underrated Films (16 movies items)

"The critics are a bit indifferent compared to the general audiences. So, not liking this movie due to its disturbing and unpleasant nature and for the pace being a bit slow are perfectly understandable. But still, this film is worth checking if you can handle sadism. It also has a bit of black humor to it."
