Welcome, one and all, to the latest installment of The Film Stage Show! Today, Michael Snydel and I are joined by Dominick Suzanne-Mayer of Consequence of Sound for a special Patreon-backed Classic episode to discuss Michael Haneke’s 1997 version of Funny Games as well as his remake. The film was an influence for Jordan Peele on Us (our discussion) and will arrive on The Criterion Collection next month.
