    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.
