Michael Haneke

Guy who's interested in modern day oppression, bleakness, etc., but not in interesting ways--that I can tell so far.

Don't Like It The Time of the Wolf (2003) -- The first ten minutes or so are interesting: slow-paced and quiet, but with a lot going on and a sense of mystery leading into horror... and then the movie devolves into a typical post-apocalyptic movie about people huddled together and trying to survive, usually while screaming at each other.  Arty but annoying.
