Lol. I haven't seen it, but I think I'll avoid it. It just sounds annoying :)

edit: omg, I just check to see if it was on my list. It's in the mail right now. I guess I will be watching it haha.
I just wanna know what noff thought of it, cos this was the last comment. Especially 7-years-later-noff.

Haha, he surely would hate it. :P

Outside of listening to the show, I don't follow film closely. So, it's not an unusual experience for me to be blindsided by an incredible movie "discovery"--The Squid and the Whale is an example--only to find out later that the move has a large, previously unknown to me, following.

I saw Funny Games at work on a movie channel. We thought it was a standard sado-thriller. I later heard Adam describing it as some kind of masterpiece. My mind was blown. If I'd heard Adam's description first, I've had hated it too. As I hadn't, I found it OK.

And as to the original question: No, that distinction belongs to Antichrist.

I don't know how large of a following The Squid and the Whale has but it is a top 2 or 3 film for me. I am pretty sure if I asked all my friends which most watch quite a few films, none would have heard of it though probably it is very well known here.  But people that is not a normal representative of the population

Michael Haneke even mentions in an interview that if his FUNNY GAMES project is a success, then he has failed.

I love this film. Very dark and experimental. I laughed my ass off when the kid died.

Don't Judge.

What kind of success? Financial? Critical? Personal?

He probably doesn't like it being on my top 100 then, eh?

Oh, No! I guarantee he'd be honored.  That movie hits everyone differently, but its not like he gave less effort on the project. He wouldn't have made two versions of it, otherwise  ;D
