And what's your favourite film/least favourite by him?
Because I just mentioned him in the Cosmopolis thread, really think mine is Haneke now. The way he manipulates the camera and is never afraid to try something genuinely new is admirable. Favourite film is probably Cache, I love the fact you have to watch everything until the final second and the unravelling of it all. The worst is probably Funny Games USA just because of how pointless it is.
As an aside, Michael, by his old casting director was really good, if ridiculously unsettling
