Aroview: A radical and virtuoso endpoint to Michael Haneke’s ‘Glaciation Trilogy’, this serves as a template for CODE UNKNOWN in its complex mosaic of disparate characters and plot threads, all which come to a head in a mass shooting spree in an Austrian bank.
Based on real life events, Haneke’s pet themes of alienation, viral television and social discord are once again at full force, though of even greater prominence is his new mastery of the narrative film. Far from fragmented in coalescing impressive sound and visual design with arresting long takes and strategically placed found footage, the film’s kaleidoscopic tableaux remains a breakthrough for the outre dir. as a filmmaker of the highest order.

3 stars (Good Enough) No fragment is surprising - that even senseless killings are part of life today. The fragments about the adopted girl & the immigrant boy, however, do test the emotions (plus looking at Michael Jackson's face) even if the killings do not.~tubbs
