Funny Games?

I am so looking forward to the new Funny Games movie. Michael Haneke who wrote and directed the original 1997 movie (German/French/Italian) is back with an English version starring Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Michael Pitt. The movie is a deconstruction of the way violence is portrayed in the media; an exploration of our violent society and how depictions of violence reflect and shape our culture. A family settles into its vacation home, which happens to be the next stop for a pair of young, articulate, white-gloved serial killers on an excursion through the neighborhood. White is going to be a scary color!
