Film Critics Love Haneke

Michael Haneke's latest, winner of the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, won the award for best picture in voting by the National Society of Film Critics. Gathered in New York City today for their 47th annual awards, the Society of 60 national film critics also voted Haneke the best director of year when they met to pick their winners at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Munroe Center.
