Hidden's director on productive frustration

Do you enjoy deliberately frustrating people? 'I look at it as productive frustration. Films that are entertainments give simple answers but I think that's ultimately more cynical, as it denies the viewer room to think. If there are more answers at the end, then surely it is a richer experience.'

Michael Haneke, director of the 'water cooler film of the year' Hidden (Caché) in Sunday's Observer. Applies to music as well as the cinema doesn't it?
