Haneke on Caravaggio's St. John

In one of his interviews with The Guardian via twitter, Palme d'Or and European Film Award 2012 winning-director Michael Haneke mentions what came across his mind when standing for a spell in front of the Caravaggio canvas The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist in Malta. It reminds him of Saw 3 and 4.

"i liked lookn at that paintin cos it reminded me of this bit in saw 3 or 4 wen sum1 gets their head choped off. then i got sad cos i rememburd that theres not been a saw film in like 4ever. wots up with that lol."

Michael Haneke is famously averse to interviews.
