The Square 15

A triumphant winner of the Palme d'Or at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, Ruben Östlund's The Square. Following his critically adored Force Majeure (2014), it's a brilliantly funny, bracingly surreal art-world satire starring Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West.
An audacious and outrageously provocative film, The Square also contains more humane notes and an eye for the subtlety of human behaviour amidst its masterly dissection of the pretensions of high art and the occasionally herdlike timidity of its followers.
'Moments of pure showstopping freakiness [...] This is high wire cinema' **** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
