    Default Michael Haneke, Lars Von Trier, Ingmar Bergman

    re: Haneke

    I suppose many of us here are stunned by the guy.

    Much as I personally hate his movies (I hope to be able to articulate my feelings after the massive Haneke [re]watch I'm starting tonight), I totally agree that he is one of the greatest.

    I suggest that my friends, too, watch or re-watch as much Haneke as humanly (ursinely) possible in the foreseeable future, and we have an extended, in-depth discussion here.

    Well, who is willing to have a Big Haneke Bout?

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was floored by his Funny Games.

    Pretty sure you know what my answer is

    And yes, I have been simply floored by his films in the past year or so. Everytime I watch one I have a vicious need to discuss them in depth so this thread will be my fix.

    White Ribbon was the first one I watched so I'd be down to renew the cycle with that.

    Also, he's in my top 5 now. Nolan, Tarantino, Kubrick, Anderson, Scorsese, Coppola, Carpenter, Spielberg, Park ... one of you needs to get up from their chair and let my boy Haneke sit at the big boys table
    Let's get a little crazy.

    I also loved Caché. I think it and his own remake of Funny Games are thus far the only two films of his that I've watched but I was absolutely blown the fuck away by both.

    Nope, don't like him. I've only seen Cache and Funny Games, but both were a 2/5 for me. Cache was an OK film without resolution, and Funny Games was just strange to be strange. So ... that's my opin! lol

    Wait. You hate his movies, but feel he is one of the greatest and you are re-watching his films.

    Have any of you guys seen Amour yet? It was nominated for best picture.

    It's cool if you don't like them because it's strange, but he never puts stuff in his films 'just because'. He is one of the most meticulous directors I've come across. Hell, even the clothing that his characters wear carries a load of subtext.

    No but I plan to. My co worker has a second job at the Laemlee in Hollywood which is a really popular theater for celebrities to hit up, she met Tarantino a few weeks ago ..

    Anyway I digress - she's a big Haneke fan and she said that this is one of her favorite films by him. I'm pretty sure it's going to come away with Oscar gold come award season. Wasn't Haneke also nominated for best director?

    Lucky girl...


    I've only seen The White Ribbon, which I loved. Funny Games, which was so so. I think it was just too much for me. And part of Time of the Wolf. I think I gave up on that one for some reason and haven't gone back to rewatch it. Maybe I'll check out Cache next.

    She met Tarantino? Man, it must be great to live in L.A. People must see famous people all over the place.

    Precisely. I hope to explain myself after the re-watch. "Hating" is not the same as "feeling meh". For example, Spielberg just doesn't exist in my cinema universe, while Haneke does. And looms large. I will elaborate when I'm through with his complete legacy to date.

    P.S. Much the same goes for von Trier and Ingmar Bergman.

    No. NO! Bad Bears! Lars Von Trier. Meloncholia. Fucking horrible. The absolute worst movie I have ever seen. ZERO redeemable traits. Yet, of course, I go to imdb to read some reviews and I read "Beautiful! Best film of all time!" Fuck that. Yuck yuck yuck!

    I hate the movie, get it? lol

    I haven't been able to watch Melancholia yet, always stopped somewhere three quarters in. I will try some time. Maybe we should have a Nordic thread, for Haneke, Trier and Bergman combined (I don't really see big difference between them).

    I love Melancholia. Lars Van Trier can be a bit of pompous prick but I can't take away anything from his skills as a film maker.

    Anyway, getting back on track - when are we starting this rewatch? A week from now? Are we all in agreement to start with White Ribbon?

    Yeah, haven't seen those either. Amour is just out in theaters and Time of the Wolf isn't on netflix ... I might have to take the plunge and buy the DVD on Amazon or something.

    I suggest we start the rewatch NOW, and everyone watches as much as they can. I have noticed that if rewatches become more organized than this, nothing w orks as expected, and in the end nothing gets done. I think while we're all (well, both) enthusiastic, we must do whatever we can, hoping that more people and animals will join.

    I think you can rename the thread now, before it is too late. We'll start with Haneke anyway, but I am sure the parallels with those two others are inevitable, so we might just as well legalize it.
