A frog worshiping motorcycle gang leader proves his religion's theory that if you commit suicide with faith you'll be resurrected as a indestructible super-human - you will. He convinces the rest of his gang, The Living Dead, to join him as they terrorize the locals.
In other words, this film is remarkable.
"I would draw a definite line between "The Castle" and "The Piano Teacher," because "The Castle" was made for television, and I'm very clear about the distinction between a TV version and a movie. Films for TV have to be much closer to the book, mainly because the objective with a TV movie that translates literature is to get the audience, after seeing this version, to pick up the book and read it themselves. My attitude is that TV can never really be any form of art, because it serves audience expectations. I would not have dared to turn "The Castle" into a movie for the big screen; on TV, it's OK, because it has different objectives" - Michael Haneke
I've grown to love Haneke, but I just couldn't bring myself to finish this one. I made it thirty minutes in and maybe one day I'll revisit it with optimism. But I was really, really underwhelmed. But mostly disappointed.
I feel that in a year or two or maybe less, I'll go back and give this five stars. As it stands now, despite occasional fits of restlessness, I really liked this film and always admire the courage it takes a filmmaker to make films as dialogue based as this.
John Waters told me I needed to see this. He was correct.
