Filmmaker Michael Haneke On Catharsis
"I think that catharsis is an overly ambitious term. If a film manages to make spectators as viewers reflective for a few hours, if it manages to make them for a short time nicer to each other, more humane, then you've achieved a great deal. Catharsis is too ambitious. I don't think, in today's society, you can achieve catharsis with a book - uh, film." Salon 01/23/13
