@boomerang,
I feel the same way about Dancing in the Rain. I did like the movie as well - found it powerful in a sense. But it freaked me out enough I do not think I could see that movie again.

Another movie for a different reason I couldn't see again (at least part of it) was Alive. The beginning where people were being sucked out of the plane while still in their seats is just too frightening for me to watch again.

A movie I haven't been able to bring myself to see is the Passion of the Christ. I cry just thinking about parts of it and descriptions of it. I don't know if I could sit through it.

Boomerang started this thread about the 2007 movie "Funny Games" which was written and directed by Michael Haneke. Haneke has just won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his new movie, "The White Ribbon."

Oh interesting!

What's that movie about? Do you know?

I wish someone hadn't tagged this thread "bad movies" and "straight to video" since that isn't at all what it is about.

@Setanta,
dogs for a walk says Setanta. DogS. More than one? I am happy that Setanta is ambulatory. I pictured a senile old man riddled with dyspepsia and arthritis.

I think Setanta is spoofing about Warhol. He knows that he has been famous on Able2 Know for years and years.

It is not know exactly what he is famous for, but I think his fame is fleeting. He hasn't posted a link in years. Is his sight going or has he forgotten how to do research?

@boomerang,
Here is a summary from the Cinema Post website:
Quote:
“The White Ribbon” examines strange events that happen at a rural school in the north of Germany during the year 1913, which seem to be ritual punishment. The film asks how this affects the school system, and how does the school have an influence on fascism if at all.


Violence seems to be a recurring theme for this director. However, Haneke is not trying to make exploitation films. In fact "Funny Games" seems to question its own audience's interest in exploitation films.
