Funny Games 2007

Funny Games ★★★ 2007 (R)

Haneke's shot-by-shot remake of his 1997 German art house thriller about two preppy 20-somethings, Paul and Peter (Pitt and Corbet), who descend upon a family, first as annoying guests, then as vicious sadists out for blood. Haneke had always said this movie would work better in America as social commentary, and he's probably right. Roth and Watts turn in harrowing performances as the tortured husband and wife, with Watts also credited as producer. Deliberately shocking and manipulative, which may validate its premise, but still, a nasty little flick. 112m/C DVD . IT GE FR GB US Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Michael Pitt, Brady Corbet, Devon Gearhart; D: Michael Haneke; W: Michael Haneke; C: Darius Khondji.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
