Triangle of Sadness

Location la: Redstone Theater
Dir. Ruben Östlund. 2022, 147 mins. Sweden/France/UK/Turkey/Germany. With Woody Harrelson, Harris Dickinson, Charlbi Dean, Vicki Berlin, Dolly de Leon, Zlatko Burić. Cinematic mischief maker Ruben Östlund liberally applies his customary playfulness to the wide canvas of his wildly ambitious, frequently hilarious latest film, which won the Swedish director his second Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Kicking off as a satirical romance, following the bickering, money-soured relationship between two hot young models (Dickinson and Dean), the three-part film escalates into increasing absurdity after they are invited on a luxury cruise, where they rub elbows with the super-rich, as well as a disheveled and disillusioned, Marx-spouting sea captain (Harrelson). To tell more would ruin the Buñuelian twists of this poison-dipped farce on class and economic disparity, which doesn’t skewer contemporary culture so much as dunk it in raw sewage. A NEON release.
