More thoughts on WHITE RIBBON

I chimed in on Haneke's latest movie a month back and now it's finally getting a wider distribution. I'm not necessarily telling you to go see it -my REVIEW was mixed- but it is an interesting experience nevertheless, in that all along you expect something big to happen but it just doesn't. The Miami Herald's Rene Rodriguez called it an 'artsy bore' but I wouldn't go that far. It is a rather excrutiating movie to sit through at times and there are instances that make it seem as if you're watching paint dry but the overall curiosity in its themes and execution is somehwhat intriguing. I'd pass on it but if you're a Haneke fan try to come up with your own conclusion.
