Atom User Reviews for Triangle of Sadness
Really enjoyed the first and last act. The middle felt unnecessary but still had a good time
It’s certainly an enjoyable watch, though Östlund gestures towards big questions about gender and class divisions without making any truly bold statements. Instead, his characters noodle around inside increasingly outlandish scenarios, and the eventual ending feels rather abrupt after two hours of build-up.
For all the plum-on-the-nose satire, Östlund does not, however, fall into the trap of making every target a monster.
Östlund's comedy of inequality and broken class structures might be a bit too blunt at times, slightly too long, and is often best when at its simplest, but Triangle of Sadness is too fun and ridiculous to not enjoy, and compared to The Square, is a step-up in Östlund's criticism of the bourgeoisie.
