The Square

Directed by Ruben Östlund

Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or-winning follow-up to Force Majeure is a brilliantly funny and bracingly surreal art-world satire that focuses on the respected curator of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm. Audacious and provocative, the film dissects the failings and foibles of human existence and the pretensions of the art world with a very sharp scalpel.
