'Funny Games'

Funny Games, a remake of the 1997 Michael Haneke movie that Haneke himself is re-directing. (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth star.) I liked Cache and loved, loved, loved The Piano Teacher, Haneke’s two other high-profile previous films; I haven’t seen the original Funny Games but I hear it’s intense. You figure this new one will be too — but something about the way this trailer overuses Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King” strikes me as stale and not very creepy and even unintentionally amusing in places.
