Ever get the feeling you’re being watched? Told entirely through footage captured by security cameras, Bong Joon Ho’s innovative short INFLUENZA documents a man’s descent into increasingly horrific violence with the characteristic twists, tension, and stylistic audaciousness that we’ve come to expect from the PARASITE director. The unblinking, all-seeing gaze of the CCTV camera is used to similarly provocative effect in Michael Haneke’s CACHÉ, a masterful exploration of privilege and guilt in which an upper-middle-class French couple find themselves plunged into a paranoid nightmare when they begin receiving a series of anonymous surveillance tapes.
