Look Back in Haneke

By S.T. VanAirsdale

The Museum of Modern Art, never content to idly sit by as the New York Film Festival dominates the city's film culture every fall, officially announced the schedule for its complete Michael Haneke retrospective running Oct. 3-15. The German-born / Austrian-bred filmmaker will be on hand for introductions and Q&A's following screenings of Code Unknown (Oct. 13) and Funny Games (Oct. 15), the latter of which Haneke recently remade with Naomi Watts and Michael Pitt (the new version opens Oct. 26).

The selections date back 30 years to Haneke's little-seen work for television, including Three Paths to the Lake (1976), Lemmings parts 1 and 2 (1979) and Fraulein (1986); the later work you know and love (or hate; really, there is no justifying the central narrative stunt in Funny Games) including The Piano Teacher, The Time of the Wolf and Caché are all here as well, as I guess you'd expect from a complete retrospective. Keep an eye on MoMA's Web site for more program details and ticket information.
