I watched the glaciation trilogy earlier this year and I have to say that Haneke strikes me as being smug and condescending about violence. He's got very well-established ideas but he seems to think that they're somehow shocking. I will say this: he's an effective, brilliantly effective filmmaker. I think that Benny's Video will be giving me nightmares for months to come. Are you aware that he's remaking FUnny Games in the US?
