Re: Michael Haneke Just Told Me To Tell You He Hates You
It's his most subdued work. Pete was right in linking to the thread on Cache
: great thread with some fine-toothed combing of what I'll still call his best movie. That's a good follow-up viewing to The White Ribbon
. His earlier stuff (Funny Games
included) can be a response to American filmmaking and, as such, can be unforgiving to his audience. His second, more impressive period of filmmaking started with Code Unknown
and features more realistic characters and less writerly hostility.
