  •  I read the NYT review (3+ / 0-)

    of Amour & while it didn't give away any GASP endings, it certainly did imply that someone was gonna die before the end of the film.  I mean, that's what the film is about.

    I admit I didn't search for the Guardian piece.  I don't intend to watch Amour (and don't expect it will come here anyway -- we barely had Beasts of the Southern Wild, and I DO want to see that one).

      BTW, have you seen any Michael Haneke films?  He's definitely an acquired taste, from what I can tell.

      •  No...he did Amour, right? (3+ / 0-)

        No, I don't often go to movie theaters, and in any case where I live there just isn't much access to foreign and art-house films.  Or even Beasts of the Southern Wild.

        Blockbusters, we get.  Also,  I did go to a matinee of Woody Allen's latest w/a friend of mine: To Rome, With Love.  It was terrific.

        It's also the last time I was in a theater.

        •  yup, "Amour" is directed by Haneke (0+ / 0-)

          His other films include Funny Games and The White Ribbon.  My general understanding of MH is that he's a Germanic Hitchcock/De Palma, but taken to psychological extremes.
