    The original is excellenteven if Haneke's intention about muh violence in media is a bit cringe, but you death of the author easily applies.
    The remake Haneke did is shot-for-shot, essentially just an experiment to see how much a film would change if it's technically the same movie but shot with a different camera, with different actors in another language and with some changes to the setting (only visual ones). I always viewed the point as to see the limits of cinematic form, like at what point something starts to feel different. I know some people who prefer it to the original, but I like the original more personally.

      >muh violence in media
      That wasn't the intention
      The intention was to show the audience how easily they can be manipulated by a film
      The whole point is that the movie can get you on the edge of your seat, and then completely shatter all immersion by having a character do something as ridiculous as grabbing a TV remote and rewinding the movie to change the outcome and then 10 minutes later you'll be back on the edge of the seat because your monkey brain is that easy to trick and to play with
      The movie repeatedly shows that it will not show even mild violence nevermind graphic violence outside of one singular shot which is only used to then rip that cathartic release away from the viewer
      But despite showing this countless times the entire time you're watching you're waiting for that graphic home invasion movie violence and before you know it the movie's over
      It's a masterclass in filmmaking and playing the audience like a fiddle

        but it didn't, see

        no, didn't even laugh once, not even a chuckle.

        I was incapable of making it past 30 minutes or so the two guys play obnoxious far too well

        it was just a boring thing, the only manipulation going on is from the silly critics and "cinephiles" who hyped it up as a "masterclass"

        I hated the movie from the start because of the dumb intro. I've never ever heard of a family in a Jeep listening to classical music while driving. It was such a mond-boggingly stupid concept. If you wanna listen to classical music while driving you better wear earphones and listen to it at the highest volume.

                I don't really understand your question. I'm against listening to music loudly. For classical music a near silent environment is needed for me to enjoy it since it's often uneven in it's melodic volume. If your environment is noisy (like if you drive on a road) you need to turn the volume up more than for other genres of music.

                My point is that you don't listen to a soft piece like an opera from Mascagni

                when you're in a car, even if the point is to make the family look sophisticated. You let them blast a bombastic tune like Marche Slave or Dance of the Knights.

          woah you sure showed me anon. I guess that somehow means everything I said about the movie is wrong because two people who haven't seen the movie don't agree with me.

          Holy shit how did a movie as simple as Funny Games go over so many people's heads? The picture perfect American TV family being violently cut off by abrasive hardcore didn't register in your brain?

              Michael Hanneke has always said that he views Funny Games as an inherently American story and a story that could only take place in America. That's the entire reason he did the shot for shot remake because that was his original vision

            I thought the kid was tired of the opera-shit and switched the cd... Boy, are you dumb or what? It didn't go over my head. "The violent and shocking cut" was just boring and predictable to me. I was hoping that it wouldn't set the tune for the rest of the movie but the whole flick could be summed up with that shitty intro. Haneke should've written a sign after the intro "if you get this intro, then you don't need to waste your time on the rest of my shitty nonsense", I wish he was honest enough to do that, but like most artist of today, he makes money on being as dishonest as possible and playing fiddle for fools like you

              besides everything else you think about the movie, is that not the perfect into ? A intro tha encapsulates the themes and setting of the movie without literally revealing the plot.

                let me give you a more detailed answer then

                Perfection should be seen as being harmonious with its surrounding. Given that the intro is a piece of the film, a perfect intro can only be perfect if the film itself is perfect. Perhaps the concept can be seen as perfect but that doesn't make the execution perfect. While its a neat idea, compressing the concept does not mean perfection. It has been done throughout the ages in all kind of media.

                I don't believe that you should be able to compress the core of the movie into an intro (as easily as Haneke made it) since that implies the rest of the movie isn't important. It's a sign of weakness if the audience is able to grasp the complete movie by just watching the intro (once). Else every single slasher which opens up with a scene where the killer kills someone is "perfect". Action movies gets mocked by critics for doin exactly this. Why is it "perfection" when Haneke creates a shitty opening but garbage when the same concept is screened in Bloodlust or Tango & Cash?

          High volume sure, but why wear headphones and risk your hearing when there's no one around to be annoyed by the music?

          • 4 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            I assume headphones would make it easier to cancel out the sound of the road or the wheels given that they drove through a forest (which I imagine was quite a bumpy road).

            I mean, it's not like I don't think people listen to classical music in a car. It just didn't fit the joyful happy family-vacation-trip-vibe.
            >where on the road, lets pick out a good tune to listen to, lets listen to an italian opera!

            Here's a situation where "calm" music fits the plot

    All those movies do is show that Haneke has a poor understanding of human nature. Yes, people are vengeful. The movies themselves are vengeful attacks on people who like revenge movies. Haneke has zero self-awareness.
