Michael Haneke's Long Takes

2017-10-18

There is a reason why Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke doesn't like to cut. Since 1981, Haneke has been taxonomic with his filmography.

He wanted further examinations of contemporary (haute) bourgeois life and consistently show his protagonists trapped, ineffective. With a medium-full of control, his discipline gives him an advantage to make it all real-time, keeping actors in the scene. For him, they are pleasing to the eyes, and it fits his weltanschauung, or his worldview.
