  • In addition to being borderline unendurable, Funny Games is inexplicable, and I don't mean in any philosophical sense. show more

  • Watts, who is one of the film's executive producers, brings a taut intelligence to the proceedings, but her character, like Roth's, is more archetype than actual person. show more

  • Perhaps the best way to appreciate the picture, its few intellectual pretensions notwithstanding, is as a classy horror film with a particularly nasty edge. It's not exactly entertainment, but it casts a poisonous spell. show more

    I ************ this movie on TV. I feel for all those who actually spent money on it. It could have easily been a brilliant thriller. Sadly, the director went with the lame approach. He must have run out of money at the end. Come on, the killer rewinds the movie?

    I thought this was just great horror movie. Great acting from the killers Michael Pitt and Brady Corbet. And always greatness from Tim Roth. He was in my favorite movie Reservoir Dogs! The Director Michael Haneke dose a great job by creating great atmosphere. One of the things i love the most about this film is how it dose not show the violence. THE ONE THING THAT JUST PISSED ME OFF WAS:SPOLIER ALERT was when Naomi Watts picks up the gun and shoots Brady Corbet. Then Michael Pitt picks up the remote and rewinds it so it did not happen. THAT JUST PISSED ME OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG to all you with negative reviews - you should look up a movie and what it's about before you SEE IT!! That's kind of common sense!!! If the synopsis says it's demented and a thriller about psychopaths hunting families, it's OBVIOUSLY going to be a messed up movie... I thought it was sooo disturbing, and I thought that if it was real life, the characters would do other things that weren't so stupid... BUT it was well acted and it really got to me psychologically... It was unlike any thriller I've ever seen. I knew what I was getting into, however, unlike you people who just went to see it blindly without even knowing what was in store for you!!!
