“Faceless” Terror

Last week, watching 2012 for all the money Hollywood throws at a big blockbuster, the “parts are bigger than the whole” type of production that Hollywood can be counted on.

Something funny happened after watching that movie. It made me watch Funny Games again. Guess the connection is an obvious one though not short of a twist. A fantastic disaster such as 2012 is completely unconnected to human emotions, it’s overwhelming and faceless.

The pain and violence in Funny Games have two young and pretty faces but little if any human ethics informed emotions except the strange “politeness” which only make them more surreal.  Hard Candy girl at least had a “reason”.
