That's why I made the comparison though, because to me Funny Games was truly horrifying, even if it wasn't graphic. I guess I'm pretty desensitized though, specially to foul language. I can barely speak English without cursing....I blame American moviesbobbybrown on Jun 5 2014, 07:19:05 AM wrote:Such tolerance. Should we stone her for not being as desensitized to explicit imagery as we are, because there's like zero chance that someone who doesn't enjoy watching it may be triggered by such things? And while we're at it, let's repeat the same for poor weaklings disgusted by rape, war, torture and animal cruelty. because apparently we as the humanity ran out of empathy right after 1950s. I'm okay with all kinds of awfulness on screen, but I don't think anyone deserves to be ridiculed for their personal sensivity level as long as they don't try to force it on other people.
And the funny thing is, according to Haneke, being disgusted by violence in Funny Games is the only correct way for a sane person to react to the film. Talking about surface.
(I think I am actually a bitter sourpuss. Damn.)
PS: Escape From New York really isn't that bloody. Only 2 moments I can think of where significant amounts of blood are shown.
