The Square ★★

I guess if you love cringe comedy, you’d enjoy this. I don’t, so I didn’t. I found its satire blunt and obvious; its humour more cruel than unusual; its pessimistic, misanthropic worldview wearying. It has its moments of visual flair, but at the end of the day, poking fun at the vapidity of the art world is shooting fish in a barrel. Disappointing stuff from Ruben Östlund after the clever comedy of manners that was Force Majeure.
