Twisted Jokes

This evening at 6:30 pm I'll be appearing on Cinema Talk on KSFR to discuss, with hosts Chris Quinn and John Dupuy, to discuss a smattering of films we watched last week. The most interesting was a double feature of Michael Haneke's 1997 and 2008 films Funny Games. Though the two are nearly identical--the second being a shot for shot remake by the director--they are vastly different. It should be an interesting conversation as to how our experiment (John and I watched the original first, while Chris started with the remake) shapes our perceptions of the film.
