O que se diz lá fora acerca de FUNNY GAMES:
«FUNNY GAMES, Michael Haneke’s first English-language film -- and a compulsively faithful replica of his notorious 1997 German-language feature of the same title -- subjects its viewers to a long spectacle of wanton and gratuitous brutality.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times.
«While I would stop short of calling FUNNY GAMES brilliant, I think it's forceful, unforgettable, and thought-provoking. »
James Berardinelli, ReelViews.
«Can a movie be gripping and repellent at the same time?»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«It's not exactly entertainment, but it casts a poisonous spell. »
Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter.
«As an academic exercise in learned helplessness, the film flaunts the ultimate power to rewrite its own "rules" whenever it likes, including taking back anything that has already been shown. A movie with no restrictions holds no real suspense, and no surprises, so any revelation of plot details in, say, a review, is meaningless.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
