Funny Games

My films are intended as polemical statements against the American 'barrel down' cinema and its disempowerment of the spectator.  They are an appeal for a cinema of insistent question instead of false answers; for clarifying distance in place of violating closeness; for provocation of dialogue instead of consumption of consensus.
