The banality of evil. Nobody does "real" horror like the Austrians: Haneke, Seidl and now Schleinzer. The most interesting part is that "Michae" is a funny movie. Not in a "Funny Games" sort of way. This is really a comedy slapstick, featuring moments of cartoon-like hilarity. Comic segments are in full view, while horror is mostly off screen. Which makes the viewing experience even more disturbing.
