Triangle of Sadness
Ruben Östlund’s satire of the rich and vain. Two models and a bunch of miljardairs on a ship. Veering from the pungent to the grotesque, Östlund takes no prisoners in this caustic tale.
‘Östlund’s wickedly funny English-language follow-up to “The Square”… employs much the same tactic of creating deeply uncomfortable situations for people more than comfortable with their privilege. It’s a Buñuelian strategy, à la “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie,” of which Östlund has become art cinema’s foremost practitioner… The thing about Östlund is that he makes you laugh, but he also makes you think… First “The Square,” then “Triangle.” No matter what sphere he tackles, we’re bound to see the world differently.’—Peter Debruge, Variety
