Though its title may make it sound like a lighthearted romantic comedy, FUNNY GAMES is anything but. Starring Naomi Watts, the film is actually a remake of a 1997 thriller of the same name that follows a family that is captured at their country cabin and tortured (though more psychologically than HOSTEL-y). It's a film that had some success but I'm curious to see how well it will translate considering some of the happenings in the third act (to say any more would spoil the movie). Watts stars alongside Tim Roth and Michael Pitt and today we have some new stills from the film. Oh and if that image of the kid looking adoringly at the golf clubs doesn't exactly creep you out? It will...

REEEMMAAAAKE

Ive seen the original Movie. Its from austria. It is a psycho-movie and very hard. After that I said to me that I will never see it again. There was broked a taboo in it. So im not really happy that its going to be a remake of old one. Because the original one was great.

Ehhh

I don't know about this one. It has a terrific cast and Heneke is the man. I just can't think of many satisfying directions for him to go with it. Odds are he will either Hollywoodize the original, or do more of a pointless shot-for-shot remake of the original. I just wish more American audiences embraced foreign movies so remakes such as these didn't have to be made in the first place. Then originals could stand on their own.

Funny Games is a movie that straddles the border between art and trash, and it made me so uncomfortable. I'm glad it's Haneke doing this one, and Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, and Michael Pitt are pretty much the English-language equivalents of their German counterparts, which I think is a good thing. Certainly, I hope there proves to be a reason behind this one (the original was an answer to Tarantino's excess, maybe this one'll be an answer to the torture sub-genre).

Curious

I've come to appreciate Haneke as a true European auteur but I question why he is remaking one of his own films - what could he possibly have to add? I hope it's nothing trite like anti-American sentiments.
