Rated R · 108 minutes · 2008

Second time around for Michael (Caché, The Piano Teacher) Haneke’s rather arch treatise on The Violence of American Cinema, which he made in 1997 with a German cast. This version features the A-minus cast of Naomi Watts and Tim Roth as upscale parents menaced in their summer home by Michael Pitt and Brady Corbet, a pair of yuppie-looking psycho killers who like thrash metal music and NASCAR on TV. Provocative as it may be, Haneke’s sporting attempt to out-shock terror-deadened Yankee audiences is probably a little bald on gore for those familiar with horror and splatter flicks, but of course plenty scary for those who aren’t. This game is rigged. Devon Gearhart does a nice job as young Georgie (112 min.).
