this is why you should never question a woman's instinct!
i've read this is supposed to be an admonishment of audiences finding entertainment in horror/violence, and i'm not sure it 100% succeeds at that, but it does 100% succeed at being fucking terrifying. a mix of this & get out would be perfect, because i think this one is light on getting its point across & get out is really mainly metaphorically scary. the complexity and the potentially horrifying nature of manners in this is incredible, something that's constantly referenced in get out w/out being taken to it's extreme.
back to this movie! the breaking the fourth wall wasn't featured enough to have a notable impact, the first instance isn't until around the 1/2 way mark. unfortunately for haneke this is most effective as a scary movie.
