    michael haneke's coming out with what looks like a shot for shot english remake of his funny games. that movie was the reason i hate things like "saw" and their torture porn ilk. none of them have made me feel as raw, even with all their gore and sensational fucked-up-edness. "funny games" felt like video atonement for all the unrealistic boy hollywood violence i grew up idoizing.

    i'm not sure how i feel about a remake. it still shifts my insides all wrong. somehow i preferred knowing "entertainment" that sadistic came from somewhere else. having hollywood spit it back out at me feels worse.
