CACHÉ & BENNY'S VIDEO with Michael Haneke Q&A @ Egyptian on Sunday 9/30, 7:30

Caché

The ending of Caché has generated nearly as much debate among film buffs as the contents of Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase in Pulp Fiction. Next Sunday’s screening at the Egyptian is your second chance to grasp what really happened. Better still—if you’re still puzzled, you can confront director Micheal Haneke in person during the Q&A, though I’m sure he’ll be as cagey as he was in his last appearance there.

Caché is the story of a French talk show host who begins receiving anonymous videotapes of his home under surveilance, followed by implicitly threatening messages of crude, disturbing drawings. He suspects that his estranged adoptive brother is responsible, and his attempts to confront him lead to chaos. Smart, chilling, and suspenseful, with great performances by Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche.

Benny

Benny’s Video is no less chilling. Benny accidentally-on-purpose kills a girl, out of curiosity rather than malice, while running his videocamera. Lacking inconvenient emotions like guilt, he makes no attempt to hide the murder from his parents, and even shows them the video. Terrified for themselves as much as their son, they take steps to bury the crime.

These films probably won’t sell out, even with Haneke in person, but I’d recommend buying tickets online here anyway.
