The thing is that every moment of the film takes away the thrill of a horror film. You don’t see the gore and the violence, you see the emotional repercussions… It would be like if instead of seeing all of Michael Myers’ murders, you just saw everyone reacting with honest agony over the death of their friends are loved ones… It’s unrelenting in Funny Games. You aren’t supposed to have fun watching it. It’s not like they are exploiting violence to show that violence is bad… It’s a much more subtle film than that. So I don’t find the film hypocritical at all… There is none of that “Aww, YEAH! That Lady just got killed”, and the one moment that you DO think you have that moment, when it seems one of the two kids have been murdered, Haneke takes it back from you.

I still think its a more interesting film than it is a good film, but its interesting enough to me that I definitely still like it. I like the issues it raises even if it doesn’t make a solid point, I find it a fascinating exploration of how capable the film medium is of manipulating the audience.

The best joke in the episode, I thought, was “Declan MacManus, International Art Thief”

That’s pretty much exactly what I was going to say.

My Life as a Dog

Its an overrated movie to be sure, but far from WMOAT material.

I am pumped to see Bulworth ripped to shreds. I want to beat the person who recommended that movie to me into hospitalization. Old white man rapping while young Halle Berry pretends its acceptable? *vomit*
