There’s only so much information my brain can hold. Inexplicably I forgot about a little movie starring two of my favorite people – Naomi Watts and Michael Pitt. I read an article this morning on Cinema Blend about how Tim Roth vows to not even watch Funny Games because filming it was so difficult for him personally. In the movies, two crazies take Roth, Watts, and their son hostage in their own (vacation?) home and torture them as a game. Roth had trouble because the boy in the movie resembles one of his real life sons.
I had previously posted about the poster for Funny Games, but I hadn’t checked out the trailer yet. Michael Pitt looks as devious as ever, although I’m not so sure I like him having a partner in crime. It worked well for Murder By Numbers, but he was so much scarier in his guest spot on “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.”
Funny Games is set for release on March 14th, 2008.
