The fact that it features fine performances, talented direction and some moments of genuine suspense only makes the end product that much more grotesque and appalling.

Right retard, of course you didn't. This review couldn't come closer to the truth about this movie. The excellent production can't overcome the fact that this movie is absolutely vile, mean-spirited, and just plain sickening. Haneke knows exactly what the audience wants to see, but instead, takes us down the road no one wants to go. Haneke isn't a director; a director knows how to satisfy the audience. In Funny Games, we're left depressed, sickened, and just plain violated.

Don't you see what is ethically wrong about a director being required to satisfy his audience? what Haneke does is simply to demand a critical distance from the spectator so he can realize the moral ambiguity of his spectatorship in terms of violence as a form of spectacle.
