The Square ★★★½

''The leaders play on top. The people pay the price for everything. The people always pay the price.''

A slice of life as seen from the ground level, almost as if you were part of the revolution, but is it the form or the content that makes this film worthy of such acclaim, of that I am not so sure. This feels like a moment in time, rather than capturing the true nature of an ongoing issue, which can only hold my attention for so long before it feels like standard CNN coverage. The key here is that The Square chooses to focus it's attention on a few select activists that are in the thick of the action, allowing the audience develop a certain sympathy, even if it's only from the cosy comfort of our living rooms.
