Amour (2012)

Michael Haneke's "Amour" is taking a beating from religious-media film reviewers. I think the accusers are wrong. In Haneke’s movies, the lives of civilized, sophisticated, well-educated people are disrupted, reducing them to beastly behavior. It's a theme prevalent in his work: the capacity for evil in all of us. That's just one of 10 reasons why I think "Amour" deserves a closer look.
