The Square ()

Probable Score
Not Enough Info

Christian is the successful curator of a modern art museum - he lives in the epicenter of the art community and takes his work very seriously. A few days before the opening of the prestigious exhibition The Square he is mugged, which he can neither shake off or let pass unnoticed. Christian embarks on a hunt for the perpetrator and ends up in situations that turn steadily more amusing, and make him question his own moral compass. (imdb)

The humor does indeed come from the discrepancy between what the antiseptic theorists wanted to launch and what primate chaos they get instead. This concept does sustain quite a few brilliant satiric skits, but the cumulative havoc it wreaks is similar to when we don't give money to the beggar in the streets.

I can ignore the irrelevant vignettes or headless subplots that plague the film - even the absurd main plot device - because it's actually quite an interesting satire with a very good lead in Claes Bang, neat production design and appealing themes. What I can't ignore is the prolonged, nonsensical final act that beats the viewer on the head with basic ideas that have already been expressed more eloquently in the first part. It's nowhere near focused enough and thus a great deal less powerful.

Masterfully directed and boasts some of the most curiously nail-bitingly intense sequences of the year, plus it's edited to perfection. It's far less linear and a lot more mosaic than Force Majeure, with some very dramatic story-strands ending suddenly with no follow-up, yet it's not a stretch to piece all this together and get a clear idea of what seems to a reasonably upsetting portrayal of modern day responsibility gone awry.

Bizarre and wonderful, the scene which features on the poster was one of the greatest I've seen in a long time. This is the kind of absurd film that gives you a lot to think about, and talk about afterwards.

I can forgive Östlund for the ending that drags a bit because everything else is just amazing. Funny, controversial and thought-provocing.

A nice way of displaying nordic culture and the behaviour of the people from that region. We have lost sympathy and empathy. Every time we need to help one another we are lost in confusion and unwilling to react.

I laughed a lot while watching this. Basically this is a long nightmare of a 30-something art curator. But, some scenes are too much sketch comedy, and all characters except the main character are one sided. Criticism of the art world most of the conservatives would relate to.

Favorite movie of the year thus far. It's like Holy Motors done by Haneke. If I could put it into one word, it's - scathing. A satire on all fronts, depicting its protagonist with a thousand shades of hypocrisy - contradictions he's aware of, and others he never will be. This has at least four scenes that would make a top ten of the year. A fascinating experience that winds its way from hilarity, painful awkwardness, through stretches of social terror, and back to explosive hilarity. Great film.

Much to my unbridled delight, Östlund raises some thoughtful ideas on human behavior and modern society through a series of sharp and amusing vignettes, though I can't help but feel his eyes were bigger than his stomach. In keeping with its apparent ambition, the film would've fared better with a more interesting story/plot, not to mention, a less bloated and self-indulgent running time. It's still quite funny at times and Terry Notary's one-and-only scene is a killer.

Cok fazla konuya temas etmek istiyor ve bunu da cok iyi beceriyor fakat ister istemez bazi yerlerde filmin ana akisindan kopuk skec vari sahneler de var. Cok etkileyici ve rahatsiz edici. Finalde orta yolcu davranmamasi da ekstra puan.

I think the director moves from state-telling, where he was so successful in Force Majeure, to story-telling where he becomes winding at times. Still a nice watch.

Ostlund is a great director from a formal standpoint. The Square has a lot of highly aesthetic, interesting, and memorable scenes touching on various themes, but none of these themes are fully explored, which squanders their polemical/satirical potential. It's possible some of it is meant to be funny, but it isn't. Worse yet, as a story it doesn't really cohere and tie together into the persuasive whole that Ostlund seems to envision. I was curious at first and agitated in the last hour.

Viewed October 29, 2017. If The Square wasn't funny, it'd come across as rather annoying and didactic. Luckily, it's really funny. A pessimistic take on trust and the increasing lack of it in the 21st century. I'm still picking it apart, but there's at least 3 sequences in there that strike me as perfect.

Funny, intelligent and good looking. The story is made up out of little things which form the big picture. The Square deals with the lines between privacy and public life and the rules we follow, as absurd they may be. Never makes fun of the art, because art is life, but of the circus that comes with it. Loved it!
