To be brief, I have never seen a movie like this in my life. (Light Spoilers)
The first time I watched Funny Games, I was wary because of the few scenes that seem to drone on and on, but once the two walking red flags show up, it was hard not to be invested. Michael Pitt and Brady Corbet were perfect for portraying polite psychopaths, both being soft-spoken and doe-eyed, and the strange dialogue seems to only enhance how insane Peter and Paul really are.
A lot of the violence in this movie is either implied or off-screen, but it almost makes it more intense because you're shown only reactions and long close-ups of the family crying. Peter and Paul are very honest with the family about their intentions, but they still speak in riddles to keep them on their toes. While the parents seemed completely helpless, I have to applaud their son for putting up a fight, which is shown a few times throughout the movie. But the perpetrators always appeared to be one step ahead of every move the family made, which would be tragic if the family actually fought back instead of cowering after every attempt to escape. The disturbing fourth wall breaks bring even more attention to how the family reacts, almost like they're in disbelief too.
After the saddest scene in the movie, Peter and Paul temporarily leave, and the movie is slow again for a long time as we watch the aftermath of torture the family just endured. They scramble to call for help but to no avail, the two return, and the torture begins again for a while before there's a huge plot twist that leaves you confused and almost pissed, but the movie continues as if nothing happened.
The ending is kind of silly when you first watch, but after researching the movie I found out that it's all a huge metaphor. Funny Games represents violence in media, you don't really see it, but you get the story of what happened. I guess home invasion stories usually portray the family being helpless and the intruder always getting away, or they're defended because they're "So well-mannered."
Anyway, it's a good movie if you want a psychological thriller and have a great attention span.
