Triangle of Sadness

Triangle of Sadness ★★★½

That was pretty savage. Was it stellar social commentary otherwise? It wasn't bad, although like everyone says, we've seen Parasite already. It's hard to find new ground here: rich people have no empathy, etc. So if you're gonna do this movie, you've got to really push yourself.

Östlund elevates the material by going over the top. It's a grotesque movie, at times literally but by the third act mostly emotionally. Deadpan transgression past the limits of rational behavior: "Look, if we just told everyone it'd be okay."

Nice to see Milo managed to recover from his setbacks.
