Episode 55: Michael Haneke

Hope you're ready for an epic-length episode featuring the great Kurt Halfyard of RowThree.com, who returns for the fourth time to talk with us about the controversial and divisive director Michael Haneke. We talk about most of his filmography throughout the conversation but the two main reviews include CODE UNKNOWN and his critically acclaimed paranoia thriller CACHE.  In addition, Kurt revisits Soderbergh's underappreciated THE INFORMANT while Jim trashes the latest horror remake EVIL DEAD.
