    Absolutely perfect in my humble opinion. It delivers an emotional impact like few other movies I have seen, and invites us to think about how casually we experience violence in contexts of film and (video) games. 7 years 11 months ago

    The scariest thing about this movie is that it would seem Austria doesn't have an emergency services phone number that everyone knows. 4 years 9 months ago

    It is so rare that I have difficulty watching a film due to its disturbing content, normally because I have such a difficult time suspending disbelief. While Funny Games doesn't show much in terms of graphic visuals, the emotions it elicits through suspense and suggestion are truly horrifying, perhaps the most horrifying I've ever experienced as an audience member.

    To console myself, I looked up the actors via wikipedia and IMDB just to make sure they're all normal people, generally okay, at least alive, etc....well fuck me, 3 out of the 4 main actors have all died prematurely. I feel sick to my stomach right now.

    This film is truly a curse and probably should have never been made. Though it is brilliant satire.
