"What is the point of that? Nothing, that was the point." A critique of art-world pomposity and self-importance. But also an exploration of empathy. Gloriously skewering art world pretension, liberal guilt and the patronising middle class. Horrific or darkly comic depending on your point of view. Satire of the top tier. A film by an artist who recognizes art can't save the world. But it can at least help us laugh at it.

The Square is more a series of loosely connected vignettes than one cohesive story. I almost got distracted while watching for the connective tissue, but the only through-line is the search for help and the theme of power imbalance and domination. Despite the long runtime and the feeling of something missing tying it all together, I was never bored, which is testament to the excellent direction and camera work. There is so much beautiful symbolism, giving you always something to look out for in almost every frame.

Rarely do I give up on a movie. Even bad ones I will try to finish to give the filmmaker a chance to complete their dialogue. But this one exceeded my tolerance. It was meant to be a bitting satire about the pretentiousness of art speaking nothing but claiming to have an inspired depth but it ended up being just what it was deriding. I could only hang in for 54 minutes. Despite a great cast, and a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film by the 90th Oscars, this was just a bad, boring, vacant movie. I give it a 3 (bad) out of 10. [Drama?]

So yeah, this film... I mean I kept waiting for something to happen, and nothing ever really came of anything. but in the end, despite that, it was still sorta interesting. http://www.susanhatedliterature.net/2019/03/the-square/

The Square is great. It will hopefully not become just a hidden gem, after winning Palme d’Or at Cannes.
I should emphasize that it brings up serious social issues, which are worthy to contemplate about, but it also holds lots of funny moments. (sex scene and the talk after that, how that poor More

I'm not a great fan of dramas, but this was an entertaining film. I gave this 4 stars just for the ape scene.

This sets off a chain of events that threatens to unravel his self-absorbed world. The film also stars Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West and is directed by Ruben Östlund. It More
