Article Excerpt:

byChris Feil

Joining the Criterion Collection this week is Michael Haneke's notoriousFunny Games,a confrontational allegory about western obsession and consumption of violence as entertainment.Here a family is psychologically tortured by two young male invaders,with the fourth wall broken and the audience taunted for their refusal to stop watching.The film plays with the gentle and the profane within our society,the contrasts between them drawing out what is toxically mundane about both.Haneke introduces his metaphor in the film's angelic opening scene,and music is his shocking first tool.
